Abraham is the man of the hour during week four of our series on salvation history. And there are a lot of moving parts to his story: Before he was Abraham he was Abram. He was called out into the wilderness by God. He's responsible for the practice of circumcision. He sent his illegitimate son away. And was asked by God to slay his only-begotten (legitimate) son as a sacrifice. Are all these events random or do they fit together, and how? Richaél Lucero connects the dots to show the bigger picture at work. SHOW NOTES: —DONATE! Monthly or one-time: www.clumsytheosis.net/donate —Email list sign up: eepurl.com/gItxjH —This Series.
