Episode 4: follow the story of Genesis from creation to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob

Abraham lived with his family in a place called Ur, until one day God called him. God made three BIG promises to Abraham. Firstly, God told Abraham to leave his home and go to the promised land God would show him.

Secondly, God promised Abraham he would make him into a great nation with lots of great-great-great-grandchildren, even though Abraham and Sarah were old!

And thirdly, God promised to bless Abraham and that everyone would be blessed through Abraham. These promises were God's grace to those who didn't deserve it but were loved by God.

Suitable for primary school aged children.
