A Woman for Isaac – Genesis 24:1-67

In this class, Ross covers the 24th chapter of Genesis in his ongoing study of the ancient triennial Torah cycle of readings. The story involves Abraham sending his trusted servant to acquire a woman for his son Isaac. Within the narrative of Genesis 24 is a story of faith that is seldom considered. Ross takes a close look at the prayer of the servant. The prayer was bold and specific, and it demonstrated a total reliance on the miraculous intervention of God on the part of Abraham’s servant. What can we learn from this faithful prayer? Does YHVH work behind the scenes to see His plans and purposes fulfilled? The servant requests of God that he “please make something happen before my face this day.” Should modern day servants of God model their faith, and their prayers on the servant’s faith and prayer. Ross suggests that we should.
