Bible study 15 – Genesis 15

Since Abram’s wife Sarai is “barren”, his current heir is a mere slave called Eliezer. Abram complains to God, who assures him he will have children some day. He asks for some animal sacrifices, and then tells Abram in a dream that he will save his descendants from 400 years of bondage (presumably in Egypt) in the future. He then once more gives Abram and his descendants a large territory.
