Isaac: Child of Promise

Answers Bible Curriculum Second Edition Unit 3 Lesson 37

This week in Sunday school, we’re looking at the long-anticipated birth of Abraham’s promised son, Isaac. Why, in anticipation of Isaac’s birth, does God ordain that Abraham and his descendants adopt circumcision? Why did God make Abraham and Sarah wait so long before providing their child? And what does the dismissal of Hagar and Ishmael from Abraham’s household show us about how one does or does not inherit the blessings of God?

Our main texts for this lesson are Genesis 17:1-27 and 21:1-21.
