Outline of contents
Last session, we saw how God called Abram to follow Him. Abram was like a new Adam. God was making a new start. Adam was the father of humanity; Abram would be “the father of a multitude of nations” (Genesis 17.4) – the father of God’s new humanity.
God’s call to Abram launched a whole new phase in God’s plan to rescue mankind from Satan’s dominion, and to make Earth a paradise where He and mankind could live together.
In this session, we look at the lives of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph and Moses. And we see how God rescues His fledgling nation from Egypt through the Passover and the Exodus, and launches them on their journey to the Promised Land.
On our route, we’ll see how God revealed Himself to people – especially through His Names. And we’ll see God training and preparing individuals to serve Him. God brings us ‘up close and personal’ to Abraham, to Jacob and to Moses. These men had their flaws, but God worked wonderfully in their lives through His word to them and through their circumstances.
