Reflection Questions
  • Using Green 1986 Interlinear Bible , trace the the words in the Hebrew original for the phrase all nations or all peoples or all families in the five key Great Commission passages in Genesis. What are the Strong numbers for all and the (two) numbers for nations (or peoples , etc.)? In view of defects in the textual apparatus, you will have to fill in some word numbers from one of the other texts by carefully comparing the Hebrew words in each case. Also, in one case the number given is 494 but should be 4940. See if you can take this in stride.
    Look for the word
    all and the word nations/families and list the Strongs number next to the correct verse .

    Gen 12:1-3

    Gen 18:18

    Gen 22:18

    Gen 26:4,5

    Gen 28:14,15



  • Now turn to Green 1984 Hebrew Concordance and look up the numbers you find. By scanning their use in the whole OT, see if you can sense the difference between the two different words used for nations or peoples or families . Is God trying to make a distinction? (Note: the Greek Bible, that is, the LXX, uses only one word in these five passages, ethne .)


  • Now find the Strong number ( Interlinear Bible ) for the key word blessing in these five passages. Trace the Hebrew word through the whole OT ( Hebrew Concordance ). Notice especially the passages in which Abraham blesses Isaac and Isaac blesses Jacob instead of Esau. What is the range of meaning of this key word? How does it square with contemporary evangelical concepts of salvation or conversion?
