Genesis 11:10-13:4

  1. Consider the inseparable intermingling of command and promise in God’s call to Abram.
    How, in consequence, did Abram’s faith express itself?
    Cf. Heb. 11:8. Compare and contrast Gen. 11:31 with 12:5.
    In what ways is a similar response demanded by the gospel of Christ?
  2. In what two respects did Abram’s faith fall short under the tests of famine and fear?
    When he acted unworthily how was he rebuked?
    What may we learn from Gen. 13:3, 4? Cf. Rev. 2:5.
