The Birth of Israel
God told Abraham to leave his home and go to a new land
far away. He obeyed God (unlike some other people in
Genesis). God promised to give Abraham many children.
God gave Abraham a son (Isaac). Isaac had kids, who had
their own kids, who had kids—you get the picture. That’s
why Abraham is called the father of God’s people. Read the
family history in Genesis 12–15.

Abraham and his nephew
Lot were involved in a

God wanted to be with Adam and Eve, but their sin broke the relationship. But even back then, God had a way planned to take away people’s
sin. That way is Jesus.
God gave a hint about Jesus in Genesis 3:15. “You will strike his heel”
means that Satan tried to make Jesus sin during his time on earth.
(It didn’t work.) “He will strike your head” means that Jesus defeated
Satan. (It did work!) Check out 1 John 3:8 for proof.
