Abraham taught his children to believe and have faith
Abraham taught his children to believe and have faith – Hebrews 11:17-20; Genesis 25:20-21; 26:1-5
17 By faith (believing specifically what you hear) Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,
18 Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:
19 Accounting (reckoning) that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he
received him in a figure (did even in a figure receive him back).
20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.
20 And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padanaram, the sister to Laban the Syrian.
21 And Isaac intreated the Lord for his wife, because she was barren: and the Lord was intreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.
26 And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar.
2 And the Lord appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:
3 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;
4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;
5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice (to be heard and believed), and kept my charge(to be observed), my commandments (decrees to be acknowledged) , my statutes, and my laws (instructions to be followed).
