Well, this is my first attempt at a podcast connected with the blog here.  I’m still trying to figure all of this stuff out, so hopefully this will get better in time.  Click the download link above, which should take you to the proper place to listen to this episode.  Once there, open your Bible and click play.

Abraham was tested.  We know that without a doubt.  How was he tested?  Why is he included in the Hebrews 11 hall of faith.  Using those passages we’re going to look at three tests to Abraham’s faith, and how Christians living in 2014 can learn from them to live lives that are pleasing to our God.
