MacArthur Old Testament Study Guide Series, Volume 2
A Study in Genesis 12-19
Abraham is known as the father of Israel, because God appeared to him and promised that his progeny would become "a great nation." Yet Abraham is actually much more than the patriarch of a select group of ancient people. Through Abraham's descendants, God's own Son, Jesus, was born. Abraham is the father of "all" God's people, whether born Jew or Gentile.
"The Father of Israel" takes an in-depth look at the historical period beginning with Abraham's initial call from God, continuing through his relocating adventures, and concluding with the story of his grandsons Jacob and Esau. Studies include close-ups of Sarah, Isaac, and others, as well as careful considerations of doctrinal themes, such as "Covenant and Obedience" and "Trusting Everything to God."
This twelve-volume MacArthur Old Testament Study Guide series provides intriguing twelve-week examinations of the entire Old Testament. Each guide looks at a portion of Scripture from three perspectives--historical studies, character studies, and thematic studies--and incorporates extensive commentary, detailed observations on overriding themes, and probing questions to help you study the Old Testament with guidance from John MacArthur.
