Jacob and Esau
This episode is about the story of Isaac and Rebekah's children Jacob and Esau. This story picks up about 20 years after our last story. Jacob and Esau were legendary rivals as kids but grew up to be nations at odds. But throughout the story we see God's faithfulness to Abraham's family.
Isaac and Rebecca: A Love Story
In this week's episode we discuss the meet cute and marriage arrangement of Abraham's Son Isaac and Rebecca. We ended last time with Abraham’s reconciliation with God. Yahweh provided a lamb for sacrifice and established an atonement for the broken relationship. But today we pick up almost 15 years later. Isaac is a young man now, Sarah has died, and Abraham is well advanced in years. And Abraham is finding away for his son to get married. As I share this story, we will talk about oaths, how much water Camels can really drink, and of course Ancient Near Eastern Marriage customs.
Sacrifice of Isaac
This is a story that most people who grew up in and around church have heard many times. But it has always fascinated me, because it is so shocking that God would make Abraham wait 25 years for this promised son, and then a few years later ask him to give him up? It doesn’t make sense. Why would God do that? We will discuss these questions and more as we discover that even though God asked for Abraham’s son, Abraham was faithful and God provided a replacement sacrifice. Yahweh provided a Ram!
Birth of Isaac
In this episode we tell the story of the birth of Isaac. It has been 25 years since God first promised Abraham a son and today we are going to see God come through on his promise! It was a long wait, and Abraham wasn’t perfect along the way, as we discussed a couple episodes ago. But God, still reached out in love and redemption to give Abraham what was promised to begin with, a son of his own flesh and blood
Part 2: God's Covenant with Abram
In this episode with discuss the 2nd part of God's Covenant with Abram. We see Abram and Sarai's name to Abraham and Sarah. We will see that this chapter is the beginning of God's redemptive plan and how Abraham and Sarah's descendants have a part to play in it.
Our Ancient Future Story: Navigating Scripture Through The Eyes of Family. We as Christ followers, are children of God, co-heirs with Christ, adopted into God’s family, but now that we are in the family of God there is an Ancient Future story that we need to learn to tell us all about this Amazing family we are now a part of. And we need to know this story. Throughout this podcast we will open the pages of history and step back in time to recount and relive our story. We will walk with family and discover each town, explore major kingdoms, and experience miraculous victories. My hope is that at the end of this podcast we will see that these are not just characters in a story that someone just thought up and wrote down. But that these are Actual people, who really lived, and who are our ancestors. So, I encourage you to grab a cup of coffee and find a comfortable place to sit and get ready to hear scripture like never before…Through the Eyes of Family.
