Abram you shall leave your house and go to a land I show you!
Yes God, as you wish
Abram and Sarai in Egypt
Sarai is your wife not your sister, take her !
What a miracle, he didn't kill me!!
The Covenant with Abram
Lord God, my only wish is to have a child!
Do not fear! Abram, I am your shield and I will give you a great reward.
God tells Abram to leave his house and family, to go to Canaan.
Birth of Ishmael
Since I haven't brought you any kids, have intercourse with my made Hagar perhaps I will have sons through her .
Abram tricks Pharaoh that Sarai is his sister, but Pharaoh finds out that Sarai is Abrams wife.
Covenant of Circumcision
Abraham every male shall be circumcised, including you!
I will make your wife Sarah fertile and you will have a child!
God came to Abram in a vision and told him that he was destined to receive a great reward.
The testing of Abraham
oh thank God it was a test
Abraham! Abraham! do not hurt the boy ! it was a test!
Abrams wife Sarai, couldn't have any kids. So she suggested that Abram would have intercourse with her maid Hagar to have kids.
Okay that sounds like a great idea!!!
God made a covenant with Abram. In order for Abram to have power and descendants he needed to circumcise himself & descendants. He also needed to change his name to Abraham.
HAHAHA!! How can an old man like me have any kids ?
God told Abraham to sacrifice his son in the mountains as a test. So Abraham obeyed God and took his son to the top. As he was about to kill his son an Angel came from the heavens and told him not to. So he didn't. God promised him countless descendants.
