The Tale of Abraham and Sara

Abraham and Sarah were a devoted couple who lived happily in their small home. Their only wish was to have a child. One day God appeared and asked the couple to prepare for a journey.

God encourages Abraham to leave his homeland and travel to a location he would show him, promising to bless him, make his name great, and bless those who bless him. Abraham followed God's call and travelled to Canaan with his wife Sarah, and the wealth they had amassed.

Abraham and Sara

They settled down in the new town, and as the years passed by they grew comfortable in the town, but they still did not have a child. They often thought about the promise made by God.

God came to Abraham once more a few years later, when he became old enough to be a grandfather. 

"You shall certainly have a baby, a boy," he told Abraham. Abraham burst out laughing and refused to believe what God had said. Nonetheless, he preserved his belief.

Three men came to see Abraham and Sarah shortly afterwards God chose Abraham and said he would certainly have a son.

Because Sarah was unable to come to the door on the day, Abraham greeted them and invited them to take a seat. Abraham then requested if he could get everyone any food.

Abraham's offer was accepted by the guests. As a result, Abraham served bread and milk to the guests. The guests then mentioned something astonishing. "We'll pay you another visit next year," one of them stated. "By then, you'll have a son."

The three of them walked away after saying so. Sarah, who had been eavesdropping from behind the closed door, was overjoyed.

After the three guests had left, Sarah and Abraham recognised that the gentleman who had promised them they'd have a son was none other than God almighty.
