Let us review the turn of events in the life of Abraham: 1. G-D told him to leave his homeland to be a stranger in the land of Canaan. (Gen 12:1) 2. Immediately after his arrival in the Promised Land, there was a famine. (Gen 12:10) 3. The Egyptians took his beloved wife Sarah to be brought to Pharaoh. (Gen 12:15) 4. Abraham faced incredible odds in the battle of the four and five kings. (Gen 14:14) 5. G-D told him to circumcise himself at an advanced age. (Gen 17:24) 6. He was promised a son for an heir and took 25 years to fulfill (Gen 15:5; 17:4; 18:10) 7. The king of Gerar took Sarah, intending to take her for himself. (Gen 20:2) 8. G-D told him to send Hagar away after having a child with her. (Gen 21:12) 9. G-D told him to sacrifice his dear son Isaac upon an altar. (Gen 22:2) 10. The death of his beloved wife and he had to beg for the burial place (Gen 23:1-20).
