VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. Similarities and Differences between Abraham and Sarah

1. Abraham is the lord over Sarah, Sarah is the princess.

Sarah is "saw-raw" in Hebrew meaning "princess, feminine of captain, chief, prince,ruler" from her old name "Sarai" meaning dominative. Sarah recognized the lordship, and authority of his husband Abraham over her.

Abraham came from the Hebrew word "'abraham" meaning "father of a multitude" from Abram meaning "high father" or "exalted father" because he can't bear children and is impotent.

Genesis 17:15 (Amplified Bible)

17:15 And God said to Abraham, As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai; but Sarah [Princess] her name shall be.

Genesis 17:5 (Amplified Bible)

17:5 Nor shall your name any longer be Abram [high, exalted father]; but your name shall be Abraham [father of a multitude], for I have made you the father of many nations.

2. GOD talked to Abraham directly regarding his Seed (CHRIST), even the change of name of Sarah was told to Abraham not to Sarah

Genesis 17:19 (King James Version)

17:19 And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his Seed after him.

Genesis 17:15 (Amplified Bible)

And God said to Abraham, As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai; but Sarah [Princess] her name shall be.

3. Both of them laughed at hearing of having a son, but Sarah denied it at first, but later admitted it.

Genesis 18:15 (Amplified Bible)
