Where We Left Off Last Week

The Great Flood has Come . . . and Gone

In the Aftermath of the Great Flood the 4 surviving human couples

set out to re-establish life on planet earth.

Noach has pronounced blessings over the lineages of Shem and Yafet,

but curses over the lineage of Cham, esp. Cham’s son Kena’an.

Men have established lifestyles independent of God,

so He has divided them into nations, tribes and tongues

each of which seeks only its own interest – hence prejudice and war.

In the 10th generation after the Flood

a descendant of Shem named Terach sired 3 sons:

Nachor, Charan, and Avram.

Terach left Ur of the Chaldees in route to the land of Kena’an.


Where We Left Off Last Week

But Terach only made it half-way.

Charan died, leaving an orphan son named Lot.

Terach settled and established a city he called Charan,

after his deceased son.

Avram has married a beautiful woman named Sarai,

but Sarah is unable to have children.

At the age of 75 years Avram is living in Charan,

in his father Terach’s household, with his wife Sarai,

with his fatherless nephew Lot,

and with his brother Nachor and his growing family,


Introducing Covenant

Covenant =





B’rit– from bara, meaning to create by cutting, cleaving, carving

A multi-generational agreement

of favoredalliance and predictableinteraction

creating a special bond

between a stronger person or nation as suzerein/protector

and a weaker person or nation as vassal/servant

forged in blood,

confirmed by oaths of loyalty,

based upon terms specified by the suzerein,

which are enforceable by corrective discipline,

and evidenced by a covenant sign.




Favor . . .

with Responsibility

Privilege. . .

with Accountability

Care, Nurture, Provision, and Protection . . .

Deserving of Love, Loyalty, Honor and Service

Are You a Transcender?

[example: to cross over a geographical boundary]

2. To surpass

[example: to pass the other runners on a track]

  • To live independently of the ordinary
  • framework of ‘givens’ that prevail
  • in one’s family, one’s culture and one’s time
