Bible Unit Exam 2: Review Sheet Bible 11 Brian Gawlak Key Terms: 1. Patriarchs - refers to the individuals who stand at the fountainhead of our faith: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. They their wives, their families were pioneers of faith who paved the way for ancient Israel. God gives promise to first patriarch, Abraham. Isaac born to Sarah at miraculous age of 90. Jacob wrestled with God and name changed to Israel. Throughout all this, God kept his promise to the patriarchs. 2. Election - God divinely elected the nation of Israel to serve the purpose of being an instrument to bring salvation for the world. The patriarchs are also elected to serve God’s purposes. Election is a blessing and a responsibility. 3. Genesis 15 - This is the section of Scripture where Abraham tries to provide his own heir. Yet God had promised him a son and Abraham believed that God would do this and it was credited it to him as righteousness. Then God cut a covenant with him (Suzerain Vassal Treaty). Before passing through the pieces of the dead animal God speaks of the distant future of Abraham’s descendants, God would fulfill his promises, even though Abraham could not see that far into the future. Then Abraham falls asleep and God passes through. This is an example of monergism or “one worker”. God alone could fulfill covenant because man is faulty and can’t perfectly obey it. 4. Abrahamic Covenant - Covenant made between God and Abraham in Genesis 15. God promises to Abraham’s descendants the land of Israel. Yet Abraham had no heirs at the time. Yet God was going to keep his promise and provided for Abraham with his son Isaac. God calls Abraham to righteousness because those under a covenant with God must be righteous. Calls Abraham to circumcise his whole family. 5. Jacob/Israel - Son of Isaac. Trick Isaac into blessing him and not Esau. God affirms his covenant with Jacob with a dream while he was fleeing for his life. Jacob has 12 sons, the future tribes of Israel. Jacob wrestles with God and receives the name Israel as a blessing. The patriarchal covenant continues with Jacob. 6. Judah - one of Jacob’s twelve sons. This tribe split from the rest of the Israelite tribes and lived in the Southern region of Israel. (this is all I could find on Judah) 7. Late Date Exodus - one of the two primary theories of the Exodus. This was believed to occur in the 1200’s. This view takes a symbolic understanding of the Biblical numbers presented by Solomon. Also this view holds fast to the understanding that the Israelites were building the city of Ramesses, under Ramesses II of Egypt who lived during the 1200’s era. 8. YHWH - translated Yahweh. God calls himself “I am”. This means he is eternal, is independent and always exists. This statement takes place at the burning bush in Exodus 3, when Moses asks who has sent him. God responds “I am has sent you.”
