Quotes to Consider:
Thomas Scott: "Abram was not renowned, either as
a conqueror, a law-giver or an inventor of useful and ingenious arts: he
was neither a monarch, a genius, a philosopher, nor so much as an author
of any sort, but a plain man, dwelling in tents, and feeding cattle all
his days. Yet perhaps no mere man has been so widely and permanently had
Homer C. Hoeksema: "The Lord does not begin a
totally new work with the appearance of Abram on the stage of history. It
is not a new covenant that is established with Abram, but the same
covenant that God had established with Shem and with Noah and with the
prediluvian patriarchs, dating back to the protevangel immediately after
the fall. God’s covenant is always the relation of friendship between
himself and his people, and is essentially the same covenant throughout
history. That covenant of God certainly passes through a history. The
nature of that history, however, is not that it consists of several
separate works or dispensations, totally unrelated to one another. Rather,
the history of God’s covenant is characterized by the fact that the
covenant advances and develops and increasingly approximates its ultimate
realization as determined in God’s eternal counsel. God’s final purpose is
to bring his covenant to the highest conceivable glory; toward that goal
all the history of his covenant must lead" (Unfolding
Covenant History, vol. 2, p. 101).
