The Covenant with Abraham

Text: Genesis 15
Speaker: Brian Borgman
[Listen or Watch]

God in a vision comes to Abram and reminds Him of what He is for Abram. Abram feels the weight of the promise delayed and offers a suggestion to God. God reconfirms the promise to him and then inaugurates the covenant with him.
