Approach: Learn the details of God's first promises of blessings to Abram.

Hermeneutic objective: Encourage the student to make notes in his Bible and use an atlas to understand the geographical context.

Theological objective: Students will enumerate the blessings of obedience that Abram experienced when he left his pagan upbringing and traveled to Canaan: he would be the father of a great nation, his name would be great, he would be blessed and be a blessing, and through him all the families of the earth would be blessed.
