Nineteenth Sunday after Pentecost
Sermon by Pr. Scott Grorud
“God’s PROMISE, Abraham’s Faith: Mistaken for Faith”
1) How does understanding of ancient law and custom change how we read Genesis 16?
2) In what way was Sarah and Abraham’s solution to their childlessness mistaken for faith in God?
3) Why could Ishmael’s birth not serve as fulfillment of God’s covenant promise to Abraham?
4) How does the messy account in Genesis 16 inform how we live under God’s promises to us?
