  • What unique aspects of society would one expect to arise from followers of the Abrahamic covenant? (Remember, the covenant is repeated five times.)

  • Speculate on how Abraham became a believer, and review the religious and missionary aspects of Abraham’s journeys. What was the missionary importance of communication and trade systems in the ancient world?
