100-102- Genesis Part 2
Genesis Part 2 is the story of Abraham a man called by God to leave his home and family and travel to a land that he knew not where. On faith Abraham answered that call at the age of 75 years and took his wife Sarah and Nephew Lot and began the amazing journey. God had promised that he would be the father of many nations and his descendants would be as the numbers of the stars. On faith Abraham journeyed to the land of Canaan, the Promised Land, but he would not possess it. It was a land promised to his children of many generations later. At the age of 100 he fathered a son named Isaac from his barren wife Sarah.
We also hear the story of Isaac and his son named Jacob who was latter named Israel, the name of the nation of God’s choosing. This is a story of trials and tribulations but the players Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob remained faithful to a God of faith,
Part 2 ends with the birth of Jacobs’s twelfth son Joseph.
