Power Grabs and Patriarchs • Firstborn Ep. 4 - BibleProject. Early in the story of the Bible, God chooses the family of Abraham, his son Abraham, and Isaac’s son Jacob as his chosen representatives to bless other peoples. But these families are full of the same rivalry, envy, and division present in any other family. What is God doing with these less-than-ideal candidates? Join Tim and Jon as they trace the theme of the firstborn in the narratives of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Jordan B Peterson - Watch Biblical Series 12: The Great Sacrifice: Abraham and Isaac.
In this, the final lecture of the Summer 2017 12-part series The Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories, we encounter, first, Hagar's banishment to the desert with Ishmael and then the demand made by God to Abraham for the sacrifice of Isaac.
To sacrifice now is to gain later: perhaps the greatest of human discoveries. What, then, should best be sacrificed? And what might be the greatest gain? There are few eternal questions more profound and difficult.
Jordan B Peterson - Watch Biblical Series 9: The Call to Abraham.
In this lecture, I tell the story of Abraham, who heeds the call of God to leave what was familiar behind and to journey into unknown lands. The man portrayed in the Bible as the father of nations moves forward into the world. He encounters the worst of nature (famine), society (the tyranny of Egypt) and the envy of the powerful, who desire his wife. There is nothing easy about Abraham's life. Instead, he is portrayed both as a real man, with serious problems, and a hero, who overcomes tremendous obstacles to establish himself in the world.
His covenant with God is an Ark. His decision to aim at the highest good he can conceptualize places an aura of magic around the events of his life, despite their harshness. He's a model for life in the world as it is, not as we wish it would be.

Similarly, when God is ready to give you a next-level experience with Him, it also may come with a test. In this lesson, learn how God has already seen how He will provide for your circumstances and may just be waiting for you to step out in faith.
Tony Evans (August-15-2021) Watch Sermon: Abraham: The Pilgrimage of Faith. When God has a destination that He wants to take you to, are you willing to leave the world you know to move on to better things? Abraham didn’t have all the details but still left behind everything familiar to him to pursue the destiny God had in store for him. In this look at the life of Abraham, Tony Evans introduces three important concepts for your walk of faith: Leaving, Living, and Looking.
The Bible Project (June-01-2021) Watch: Abraham and Melchizedek. Melchizedek is one of the most intriguing characters in the Bible, first introduced in the story of Abraham. He’s a mysterious priest king who rules a city that will later be called Jerusalem, and he gives God’s blessing to Abraham. In this video, we’ll explore how Melchizedek fits into the larger biblical theme of the coming royal priest.
TD Jakes - Sermon: The Contract: Receiving The Blessings of Abraham. We serve a God who remembers our sacrifices and rewards our patience. If you walk in faith today, He’ll bless your tomorrow for generations yet to come. It's on God's timing that you receive His promises, and rest assured that God doesn’t suffer from selective amnesia; He knows when to bless you, so it behooves you to slow down, and you’ll receive all that is rightfully yours! Scriptures: Genesis 15:7-18, Psalm 25:14, Exodus 2:23-25, Exodus 12:27-30,35-36,40, & John 13:1-6,24-28 (KJV)
