Genesis 25:1-18

Abraham’s legacy begins

3) Abraham’s eight sons

The Jewish nation came from his son, Isaac. Abraham did not forget the promised covenant or Isaac’s miraculous birth and gave him all of his wealth including the one piece of property he owned in Canaan.

Before Abraham died, he gave his other sons gifts and sent them away to the east country to protect Isaac.

4) Abraham lived one hundred seventy five years.

His sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave he purchased as a burial site for Sarah. (Genesis 23:9-20)

God’s promise that Abraham would be the father of many nations was fulfilled through his eight sons. The seven sons besides Isaac further confirm the fertility problem was with Sarah and not Abraham.

Abraham, one of the three most important men in the Bible, is mentioned 70 times in the New Testament. Moses is mentioned 80 times. He wasn’t perfect, but he was a man of faith who had a real relationship with God, remarkably obedient, and a true friend of God (2 Chronicles 20:7; James 2:23).1

5) God kept His promises to Abraham. (Review Genesis 12-24)

Promised Land—God called Abraham out of his homeland to a land He would show him.

Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your offspring I will give this land.” So he built there an altar to the Lord, who had appeared to him. Genesis 12:7

A Great Nation—

“Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him” Genesis 18:18

All the families of the earth will be blessed.

“and in your offspring shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because you have obeyed my voice.” Genesis 22:18
