Abraham Unit (Four Lessons)

After the Great Flood and the Tower of Babel, God initiated a special relationship with an aging, childless man and promised him descendants, land, and influence. The Lord would maintain a special relationship with Abraham and his offspring, the nation of Israel. He would reveal Himself to them and ultimately would send His own Son, Jesus, to the earth as a member of this special group of people.

This Old Testament Abraham unit for preschoolers tells the story of God’s relationship with Abraham and how the patriarch responded to God’s call and blessings, including the blessing of becoming a father at 100 years of age! Abraham’s life offers lessons even preschoolers can understand. Among other things, Abraham’s life challenges us to trust God, even when we have to wait.
