What Is the Good News of Yeshua? (Part 6) Sealed by the covenant of circumcision, the birth of Isaac marked the beginning of Abraham’s promised line, and the distinction of a set-apart people. Until this time, Abraham had proved himself most malleable—willing to appease the command of both God and wife alike. But now, with […]

God of Promise, Pt. 1

What Is the Good News of Yeshua? (Part 5) Because the descendants of Adam had become earth’s sinful citizens, God destroyed the world.
