This article concerns the covenant that God makes with Abraham after he returned from defeating the the kings of the east. It is an account that continued to unfold how the seed of the woman will triumph over the seed of the serpent. In Genesis 15, God strengthens the promise of this seed, although there is nothing yet to prove that the seed will come. The only thing Abraham holds on to is the promise of God.
This article discusses the human sinful motives behind the Tower of Babel, which include pride, passion for power, and other sinful delights. The author contrasts Babel with Jerusalem, the call of Abram, and the day of Pentecost. His emphasis is on the contrast between two loves: love of self and love of others.
We have been looking at a question, “What is a Christian?”, and we have been answering that question by looking at what the Bible, particularly the New Testament, has to say in answer to the question “What is a Christian?” We began by saying that a Christian is a Christian, even though that term is hardly used in the New Testament. It only occurs in two or three places in the New Testament, and in each place it is used in a derogatory (disrespectful, critical) sense. It was a term of abuse (‘little Christs’, literally), by detractors of the gospel in the first century.
We are going to continue in this series as to What is a Christian? And we have looked at various answers to that. The Christian is a ‘Christian’ – actually the least used term in the New Testament; it is only used on two or three occasions in the New Testament. We have considered such things as that a Christian is a servant, or perhaps more in reference to the New Testament itself, a slave – someone whose life is yielded entirely, without reserve, to a master; namely, the Lord Jesus Christ.
