God’s Covenant with Abram

Answers Bible Curriculum Second Edition Unit 4 Lesson 36

This week in Sunday school, we look at two very significant episodes in the life of Abraham: the ceremony formally establishing the Abrahamic Covenant and the failed effort of Abram and Sarai to obtain the son of promise through Hagar. What can we learn from these accounts about God’s compassionate faithfulness? Why is Genesis 15:6 so significant for understanding salvation? And how can we know the difference between acting in faith and acting “in our own strength”?

Our main texts for this lesson are Genesis 15:1-21 and Genesis 16:1-16.
