wiping out the world with the flood and dashing the tower of Babel, we move
into a new chapter with a guy named Abram. One day, God shows up with the
declaration “I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make
your name great” (Gen 12:2) out of the blue. No preamble, no, “Hey, how you
doing?” And this is not something small, either. This is the promise of
becoming kings and a nation, you know, world shattering stuff, since “in you
all the families of the earth shall be blessed” (Gen 12:3). No pressure, Abram.
