Father Abraham had many sons; Many sons had Father Abraham; I am one of them and so are you;

So let's all praise the Lord. Right arm, left arm!

Right leg, left leg… chin… fist… etc.

Genesis 17:1-7

Father:

The Hebrew word for father is [Ah-V]; spelled: Aleph Vet.

In the ancient Hebrew pictographic script, this word was written as:

Ox head (Aleph), Tent (Beyt).

The Ox head means strength; the tent is the house where the family lives.

When combined: it is "the strength of the house."

Therefore the father is one who provides strength to the family.

Mother:

The Hebrew word for mother is [E-yM]; spelled: Aleph Mem.

In the ancient Hebrew pictographic script, this word was written as:

Ox head (Aleph), Water (Mem).

The Ox head means strength; flowing water, i.e. denotes action.

When combined: it is "strong water." And “strong water” = Glue.

Therefore the mother is one who “binds” the family together.

Son:

The Hebrew word for son is [Ben]; spelled: Beyt Nun.

In the ancient Hebrew pictographic script, this word was written as:

Tent (Beyt), Seed (Nun).

The Tent is the house where the family lives; The Seed is a new generation that will produce a new generation; i.e. denoting “continuance”.

When combined: it means to "continuing the house." Therefore the Son continues the family linage.

Isaac was the “son” of promise:

Genesis 26:1-5 “1- And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar. 2- And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of: 3- Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father; 4- And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; 5- Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.”

The Abrahamic covenant is an everlasting covenant:

Genesis 17:7 “And I {Yah-way} will establish my covenant between me and thee{Abraham} and thy seed{Isaac} after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.”

Let’s consider the covenant:

Jeremiah 31:30 “But every one shall die for his own iniquity…”

Jeremiah 31:31-33 “31- Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house

of Judah: 32- Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day [that] I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: 33- But this [shall be] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.”

Remember, Jesus did not come to destroy the Law (Greek: nomos [nah-moss]; equivalent to the Hebrew Torah). He came and fulfilled it.

Matthew 5:17-18 Jesus said, “17- Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18- For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”

The Pharisees were legalist; they were more interested in the letter (mechanics) of the law, than the spirit (intent) of it.

For example: Matthew 5:27-28 Jesus said, “27- Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: 28- But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.”

Paul called this concept, “A better covenant!”

Hebrews 8:6-10 “6- But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises. 7- For if that first [covenant] had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. 8- For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: 9- Not according to the covenant
