Genesis 21:22-22:24

  1. 22. In what ways was the command of verse 2 a most severe test of Abraham’s faith I God?
    Note the significance of the comment in Heb. 11:17, 18.
    From where did Abraham expect to get, and where did he expect to find, the answer to the questions that he could not answer?
    How did his faith express itself?
    Cf. Jas. 2:20-24.
  2. 21:22-34. What was it about Abraham that made Abimelech believe that a covenant between them that would be kept was a serious possibility?
    Do we seek similar evidences in our lives that will make other trust us and reverence our God?
    Cf. Matt. 5:16; 1 Pet. 2:12.
