One Man's Background

From Series: Venturing In Faith

Genesis 11:27-32  (ID: 1070)

Abram, now considered a hero of the faith and father of a great nation, was nothing extraordinary when introduced in Genesis 11. As Alistair Begg explains, however, God is never hindered by the background of those He chooses to redeem. Abram responded in faith to God’s command and looked forward to his future with God. When God shines the light of His glory through Christ in our hearts, we too must respond to His calling and seek His purpose for our lives.


Terah's Descendants

27Now these are the generations of Terah. Terah fathered Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran fathered Lot.
