Day 4: Hebrews 6:13-20

Read: Hebrews 6:13-20 again, then read Genesis 22:1-19

Think:

  • On Friday we looked closely at verses 13-15 where the author of Hebrews referenced the story of God’s oath to Abraham. Today in Genesis 22, you read the original account of that story. In your own words, what happened in Abraham’s life before God took the oath by himself?
  • What was the promise God made to Abraham in Genesis 22:15-18? 
  • Hebrews 6:15 says that Abraham “received what was promised.” How specifically did Abraham “receive” this promise made in Genesis 22:15-18?
  • In what way did you and I benefit from this promise to Abraham?
