Gen 12

by Steve

Abram gets told by God to go, he goes. He is told to do this and that, he does. He is told that he is blessed and he responds with an alter and “calls on the name of the Lord” – be interesting to know what that really meant…. The calling bit.

Then the strange bit about the famine and having to go to Egypt, all good except a beautiful woman is involved, Sarai, Abrams wife. He tells here to lie gets rich, pharaoh gets rather sick, because he took here as his wife. Ouch. They all leave, with all the baggage … Good and bad!
