Welcome to another episode of our podcast series, “The Reigning Centre – The Importance of Seeing Jesus in all of Scripture.” In this thought-provoking episode titled “The Gospel According To Abraham,” we embark on a profound exploration of Galatians 3:8, uncovering the rich gospel message woven throughout the life of Abraham.

Johnny Carson will takes us on an incredible journey through the book of Genesis, unravelling the significance of Abraham's life in light of the gospel. Each chapter reveals profound parallels and foreshadowings that point to the redemptive work of Jesus Christ.

Delving into Genesis 12-25, Johnny will emphasise how God preached the gospel to Abraham, promising blessings that would extend to all nations through his seed. The selfless actions of Abraham, putting the needs of others before his own, foreshadow the supreme sacrificial act of Jesus on our behalf.

Through the mysterious figure of Melchizedek in Genesis 14, Johnny will highlight the divine mediation of God's blessing to Abraham, drawing a striking resemblance to Jesus Christ. The covenant ritual in Genesis 15 serves as a demonstration of the gospel message, further illuminating the significance of Abraham's journey.

However, Johnny will also shed light on moments where Abraham struggled to live by the spirit, seeking to fulfil God's promise through his own efforts, showcasing our own tendencies toward self-reliance. The physical sign of the covenant in Genesis 17, the intercession of Abraham as a priest in Genesis 18, and the birth of the promised seed in Genesis 21 all contribute to the unfolding narrative of the gospel in Abraham's life.

We will explore how Paul, in his letter to the Galatians, interprets the Abrahamic covenant as pointing to salvation. By highlighting Jesus as the promised offspring to whom the covenant promises were given, and affirming that Abraham was justified by faith alone in response to the covenant promise, Paul underscores the gospel message found in Abraham's story.

Join us for this captivating episode as we unravel the gospel message interwoven within the life of Abraham. Through his journey, we gain profound insights into God's redemptive plan and the significance of faith in Jesus Christ.
