Introducing Abram and Sarai

10 Sep

27Now these are the descendants of Terah. Terah was the father of Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran was the father of Lot. 28Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his birth, in Ur of the Chaldeans.29Abram and Nahor took wives; the name of Abram’s wife was Sarai, and the name of Nahor’s wife was Milcah. She was the daughter of Haran the father of Milcah and Iscah. 30Now Sarai was barren; she had no child.31Terah took his son Abram and his grandson Lot son of Haran, and his daughter-in-law Sarai, his son Abram’s wife, and they went out together from Ur of the Chaldeans to go into the land of Canaan; but when they came to Haran, they settled there. 32The days of Terah were two hundred five years; and Terah died in Haran. (Genesis 11:27-32, NRSV)

Abram and Sarai who God renames Abraham and Sarah.

These are the two who are the parents of many nations and people.

These are the two that links all of us together.

We can all trace our lineage back to Abram and Sarai. They received God’s promise and passed it on to us.

How can we pass it on again?
