Jesus in the Old Testament

11. Terah begat Abram—Genesis 11:27

God promised Abraham that he would be the father of many nations and that all peoples of the earth would be blessed by him (Gen. 12:2-3). Traditional Jewish interpretation states that the whole world will be blessed because of the Jewish people. But the promise to Abraham was not that his “seeds” would bless the earth, but rather his “seed” would bless the earth. This can only refer to one person—the promised Messiah, Jesus Christ. In addition, this teaching discusses the difference between true religion and false religions and how our salvation is never based on our own works. We are saved by faith in the promised Messiah.  Finally, Dr. Bramson discusses Terah, the father of Abraham. Didn’t God called Terah out of Ur, too? What happens when we don’t answer God’s invitation? What keeps us from answering God’s call?
