A.M. Reading: Genesis 25
Genesis Questions Worth Pondering:
Does Abraham have other children?
Recall that a part of the covenant with Abraham was that through him all nations would be blessed. Through his linage would come the Messiah. Therefore, we see all of the genealogies listed in the Bible. You will also notice the chosen line … not Ishmael, but Isaac. And we will see that pattern repeated.
Why did Abraham give all that he had to Isaac?
Does he give anything to his other sons?
Why did he send the other sons away from Isaac?
At Abraham’s death, who did God bless? Why?
Did God fulfill the things He said He would do concerning Ishmael? Explain.
Where did Isaac turn when he and his wife had no children (descendants)?
How did God answer?

“Think” Questions: How can we see God fulfilling His Word regarding the two sons?
