A Bride for Isaac [Announcements, too!]
Genesis 23–24, “A Bride for Isaac”
Super solid message by Wayne last week on Genesis 22. If you missed it, I encourage you to listen to it here as Wayne guided us through one of the most important chapters in Genesis.
This week we’ll cover a large chunk as we look at Genesis 23–24. These two chapters form a transition from Abraham to Isaac. In chapter 23 we’ll briefly look at the death and burial of Sarah and then spend most of our time in Genesis 24, the longest chapter in the book, which tells the story of finding a wife for Isaac.
Being such a long passage, I really encourage you to read these two chapters at least once before Sunday. There’s a good bit going on, and you’ll get much more out of Sunday if you don’t come in cold. Looking forward to it!
Grace and peace,
