Abraham: Faithful Patriarch
Roger H. Knepprath
Abraham towers over many of the other personalities in Scripture. Even today, as "the father of many nations," he is revered in the world over as the patriarch of Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. His model of trust in God's promises has no equal. His uncompromising obedience to his Lord's will is without parallel. Yet it would be easy to make of Abraham more than he actually was, for he was a human--flesh and blood--like us. His remarkable journey was actually the work of the Almighty's gracious hand, which shaped and tested Abraham's faith to make him worthy of the important role God had chosen to give him.
