The Uncontrollable God of Abraham Only a small percentage of all the stories told about Abraham in the traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are found in the Bible. A scholar of the twelfth century, Maimonides, compiled a great summary of Jewish belief in the Mishneh Torah. In that work, he offered a narrative of Abraham’s youthful career, collected from the stories handed down by the rabbis through the ages. He described the Mesopotamian culture into which Abraham was born as a society utterly lacking awareness of truth and worshiping an array of gods.

11When he was about to enter Egypt, he said to his wife Sarai, “I know well that you are a woman beautiful in appearance; 12and when the Egyptians see you, they will say, ‘This is his wife’; then they will kill me, but they will let you live. ” 14When Abram entered Egypt the Egyptians saw that the woman was very beautiful. 15When the officials of Pharaoh saw her, they praised her to Pharaoh. And the woman was taken into Pharaoh’s house. 16And for her sake he dealt well with Abram; and he had sheep, oxen, male donkeys, male and female slaves, female donkeys, and camels.

So he built there an altar to the LORD, who had appeared to him. 8From there he moved on to the hill country on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east; and there he built an altar to the LORD and invoked the name of the LORD. 9And Abram journeyed on by stages toward the Negeb. After allowing the Scripture to penetrate your mind and heart, listen for further understanding through this commentary. Abram had already lived much of his life. He no longer possessed the vigor of youth or the gullibility and hearty desire for fortune and fame that often characterizes young adulthood.
