Veronica continues the discussion on the Abrahamic covenant.  We are in Genesis 15.  

In this discussion we talk about Abraham’s need for a son to carry on the covenant.  Erika shares the Middle Eastern perspective on descendants and why they are so important.  

Ishmael’s descendants are discussed in Genesis 21 and 25.  We also looked at Abraham’s other sons mentioned in Genesis 25:14.  

God cut covenant with Abraham and we looked at Jeremiah 34:17-18 as well.

We stopped the discussion in Genesis 17 just before the sign of the covenant. 

In the last two minutes of the podcast, Erika’s youngest makes a surprise appearance.
