Footprints of God with Stephen Ray
Abraham: Father of Faith & Works
Episode 1 • 1h 24m
He left his home, the bones of his ancestors, and the false gods of his fathers to follow the God of glory. Excruciating trials, weary miles of desert travel, and even the command to offer his son Isaac as a sacrifice did not deter him. Mount your camels and ride back in time to discover Abraham, the only man called the "Friend of God." Born into a pagan family in the idolatrous city of Ur, among ziggurat temples and foreign gods of Mesopotamia, Abraham heard the call of God and abandoned everything to go to the faraway land of promise. When required to offer his son as a sacrifice, Abraham held the course and pledged trust and obedience to God.
Host Stephen Ray takes you on location in an exciting journey through Iraq, Turkey, the Palestinian Territories, and Israel. You'll see the temple where Abraham was born, the place he offered his son Isaac as a sacrifice, and the Tomb of the Patriarchs where he is buried. Learn how Abraham was justified before God by faith, obedience, and good works.
