Weekly Study Questions 6 Abraham and Lot/Isaac 1. How does Genesis 18 contrast with Genesis 19 regarding God’s character and activities? a. The eighteenth chapter of Genesis contrasts with the nineteenth, the former depicting Abraham's tender, sensitive fellowship with his guests; the latter, God’s awesome judgment and violent destruction of wicked Sodom. Perhaps this contrast can give us new glimpses into God's character and activities. On one hand, He fellowships with us as He did with Abraham, but on the other our infinitely holy God is moved by, and concerned about, the wickedness of this world. (Davis, pg.195) 2. Describe the typical hospitality displayed in Genesis 18 during this time. a. Abraham’s concern that his visitors not pass him by is typical of oriental hospitality. After their feet were washed and a place arranged for their rest (v. 4), Abraham arranged a meal for his guests. With considerable haste, he put a number of people to work on the project. Grinding and baking were women's tasks, but butchering was done by the men. Abraham selected a calf from his herd and then prepared drinks and trimmings for the meal. (Davis, pg.197) 3. Describe the kind of laughter of Sarah. a. Sarah’s laugh was clearly derisive, suggesting that Abraham either had not told her of the promise (17:6,19) or failed to convince her that it could be kept. (Davis, pg.197-198) 4. How does the Lord evaluate Abraham? a. Abraham was evaluated as faithful, obedient, and consistent. (Davis, pg.198) 5. When is intercessory prayer effective? a. Intercessory prayer is only effective when one realizes how awesome the judgement of God is.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
