Abraham: An introduction to the politics and promises of the book of Genesis
Saturday 2 July 2022
God’s promises to Abraham include land possession, a great nation, and blessing to all nations – theological themes that extend through the Bible to the New Testament. But what about the dispossessed? And those outside that “great” nation, including the refugee? Is there any place for blessing from other nations as well as to them? Probing the drama and detail of the Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar stories, this session will consider the theology of Genesis within the context of ancient Israel’s history and its intersection with contemporary Christian concerns.
Taught by Dr Rachelle Gilmour
