Sermon No: 89391-Covenants - Part 9b - The Abrahamic Covenant
SERMON TOPIC: Covenants - Part 9b - The Abrahamic Covenant
Speaker: Gavin Paynter
Date: 21 March 2021
Topic Groups: COVENANTS, GENESIS, ABRAHAM
God had insisted that the covenant would be established with Sarah’s son, even though Abraham originally tried to convince God that it would be simpler to establish it with Ishmael instead. When Abraham was perturbed at the friction between Sarah and Ishmael, God assures him that while he would make Ishmael into a great nation, the Messianic promises regarding the seed (or “offspring” i.e. Jesus) would be fulfilled in Isaac.
