This account of Abraham encountering God is known as a theophany — where God manifests himself in a dramatic, physical expression. Every place where God manifests himself in some dramatic, physical way in the Old Testament points to the ultimate expression of God manifesting in a physical way in Jesus Christ.
This sermon will look at this account of Abraham encountering God under three headings: 1) The questions and doubts of Abraham; 2) The answers and assurances of God; and 3) What this means for us.
This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on July 3, 2011. Series: Theophany: Anticipations of Jesus in the Old Testament. Scripture: Genesis 15:1-21.
