A Brief Overview Of Abraham

God chose Abraham`s family to weave His scarlet thread through the linen of humanity. It was through Abraham`s descendants that the Jewish nation would arise, a people who would receive the covenant of the Lord, and that one of those descendants would be the Savior, not only for the Jews but for the whole world.
