Date: 19 February 2012
Topic Groups: HEBREWS, LEADERSHIP, BOOK STUDY
Sermon synopsis: Abraham, whose birth name was Abram, is honoured by adherents of the 3 great monotheistic 'Abrahamic' religions namely Christianity, Judaism and Islam.
After Moses who is mentioned 80 times (NASB), Abraham is the most frequently mentioned Old Testament character in the New Testament. He is mentioned 73 times in contrast to David (59) and Elijah (30).
But in Hebrews 5-7 we see that Jesus is greater than Abraham.
