Search The Scriptures — Study 8 — Genesis 11:10—13:4
Study 8 of "Search The Scriptures” Is:
1. Consider the inseparable intermingling of command and promise in God’s call to Abram. How, in consequence, did Abraham’s faith express itself? Cf. Heb. 11:8. Compare and contrast Gn. 11:31 with 12: 5. In what ways is a similar response demanded by the gospel of Christ?
2. In what tow respects did Abram’s faith fall short under the tests of famine and fear? When he acted unworthily how was he rebuked? What may we learn from Gn. 13:3, 4? Cf. Rev. 2:5.
