The Gospel in the Old Testament: Lots of Isaacs... But Who Are They?

In the Old Testament Isaac certainly was a miracle baby... and so are all true children of Abraham (also known as Christians!!). Are you one? What distinguishes a true child of Abraham from a slave child as Paul refers to them?

Galatians 3:26-5:2
Genesis 16:15-17:6,17:15-22,18:9-15,21:1-7
Acts 11:23

Sermon discussion topics for parents to use with their children:

  • Why did Abraham and Sarah laugh?

  • Why did Abraham want God to use Ishmael?

  • Why did God wait so long to give them a baby?

  • What does it mean that Isaac is a child of promise?

  • Who are Abraham's children of promise today?

  • Why are they still called children of promise?
