Portrait of a Hero . . . Warts and Everything


From: £1.50


Hebrews 11:1–2, 8–12, 17–19

When Abraham passed down the account of his life, he didn’t carefully hide his roughness, pimples, and warts. When God’s Spirit moved Moses to include the history of Abraham in the book of Genesis, the uncomfortable, embarrassing, shameful, and downright sinful episodes of the Patriarch’s life weren’t censored. The biblical writers made no attempt to airbrush, smooth over, or cover-up the truth to fit some glamorised version of this hero of the faith. As we look at Abraham’s life as a whole, we’ll be reminded that he was as much a sinner as he was a saint, and we’ll find both warning and inspiration.
