Transcript of "The Old Testament - Family of God = Israel"

  11. 14. GENESIS 17:4-7;15-16 As for Me, this is My covenant with you: You will be the father of many nations. No longer will you be called Abram; your name will be Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations. I will make you very fruitful; I will make nations of you, & kings will come from you. I will establish My covenant as an everlasting covenant between Me & you…
  12. 15. GENESIS 17:4-7;15-16 …And your descendants after you, for generations to come, to be your God & the God of your descendants after you…As for Sarai, your wife, you are no longer to call her Sarai; her name will be Sarah.

  29. 34. ISAIAH 19:20ff And the Lord will strike Egypt, striking & healing, & they will return to the Lord, & He will listen to their pleas for mercy & heal them…In that day Israel will be the third with Egypt & Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth, whom the Lord of hosts has blessed, saying, “Blessed be Egypt My people…& Israel my inheritance.”
