The Life of Abraham

A Short Three-lesson Series on the Account of Abraham's Life in Genesis

In partnership with Third Millennium Ministries

Course Introduction

About the Course

Christians, Muslims and Jews all look to the patriarch Abraham as the father of their faiths, but these religions draw very different conclusions from his biography.

This series explores the account of Abraham’s life in Genesis from a distinctly Christian perspective in order to answer questions such as: What did these stories mean for those who first received them? And what do they mean for us today?

Course Goals:

  • Summarize the structure, content, original meaning and modern application of Genesis 12–25.
  • Explain how Abraham’s life served as a model for Israel in Moses’ day.
