Discussion Questions:

1. How did Abram and Sarai show they had faith in God and his promise?

2. How did they show they doubted God and his promise?

3. Isaiah 54:1-8 “For your maker is your husband” How does this link Abraham and Sarah’s story to the church of Jesus Christ?

4. The church is a nation of all peoples: Think about this and its implications?
