Read Genesis 11 and 12
If you thought Noah received a lot of words in Genesis, today we meet Abraham.
- Why does it seem that God chose Abraham?
- What kinds of things do we learn about him in this chapter?
- Why does he build an altar?
We are going to keep track of how Abraham (and others) responds to God, what we learn about his character, and how he lives. He is called the friend of God. God calls us His friend, and I want to live well as His friend. I want to learn from Abraham, Noah, and all the others that we will read about. We will read about their victories and their failures.
We are also going to keep track of altar building and see what we can learn! These themes help us unite the whole story of the Bible as one larger story told in small chunks.
