Unorthodox Theology 201 Guidelines

Theists only.

This forum area is primarily for persons who would identify themselves as Christians whether or not their theology is recognized within the mainstream or as orthodox though other theists may participate with moderator permission. Therefore those that would be restricted from posting in Christianity 201 due to a disagreement with the enumerated doctrines, ie the Trinity, the Creatorship of God, the virgin birth, the bodily resurrection of Christ, the atonement, the future bodily return of Christ, the future bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, and the final judgment may freely post here on any theological subject matter. In this case "unorthodox" is used in the strict sense of a person who denies what has been declared as universal essentials of the historic Christian faith. Examples would be adherents to Oneness, Full Preterists, Unitarian Universalist Christians, Gnostics, Liberal Christianity, Christian Science to name a few.

The second purpose will be for threads on subjects, which although the thread starter has no issue with the above doctrines, the subject matter is so very outside the bounds of normative Christian doctrine totally within the leadership's discretion that it is placed here. In so doing, no judgment or offense is intended to be placed on the belief of said person in the above-doctrines. In this case "unorthodox" is used in a much looser sense of "outside the norms" - Examples of such threads would be pro-polygamy, pro-drug use, proponents of gay Christian churches, proponents of abortion.

The third purpose is for persons who wish to have input from any and all who would claim the title of Christian even on subjects that would be considered "orthodox."

The philosophy behind this area was to recognize that there are persons who would identify themselves as Christian and thus seem out of place in the Comparative Religions Forum, but yet in keeping with our committment here to certain basic core Christian doctrines. Also, it allows threads to be started by those who would want to still be identified as Christian with a particular belief that while not denying an essential is of such a nature that the discussion on that issue belongs in this section or for threads by persons who wish such a non-restricted discussion.

    Ishmael was made a great nation. This has nothing to do with Islam. But I don't know how to comment. Maybe someone with actual knowledge could step in, even if it is the scriptures that I can see.

    Abram (Abraham) then bore Isaac to Sarai (Sarah).

    Sarai:


    Genesis 11:29-31 NASB20 - Abram and Nahor took wives for themselves. The name of Abram's wife was Sarai, and the name of Nahor's wife was Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah and Iscah. Sarai was unable to conceive; she did not have a child. Now Terah took his son Abram, and Lot the son of Haran, his grandson, and his daughter-in-law Sarai, his son Abram's wife, and they departed together from Ur of the Chaldeans to go to the land of Canaan; and they went as far as Haran and settled there.

    Genesis 12:5, 11, 17 NASB20 - Abram took his wife Sarai and his nephew Lot, and all their possessions which they had accumulated, and the people which they had acquired in Haran, and they set out for the land of Canaan; so they came to the land of Canaan. ... It came about, when he was approaching Egypt, that he said to his wife Sarai, "See now, I know that you are a beautiful woman; ... But the LORD struck Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai, Abram's wife.

    Genesis 16:1-3, 5-6, 8 NASB20 - Now Sarai, Abram's wife, had not borne him a child, but she had an Egyptian slave woman whose name was Hagar. So Sarai said to Abram, "See now, the LORD has prevented me from bearing [children.] Please have relations with my slave woman; perhaps I will obtain children through her." And Abram listened to the voice of Sarai. And [so] after Abram had lived ten years in the land of Canaan, Abram's wife Sarai took Hagar the Egyptian, her slave woman, and gave her to her husband Abram as his wife. ... So Sarai said to Abram, "May the wrong done to me be upon you! I put my slave woman into your arms, but when she saw that she had conceived, I was insignificant in her sight. May the LORD judge between you and me." But Abram said to Sarai, "Look, your slave woman is in your power; do to her what is good in your sight." So Sarai treated her harshly, and she fled from her presence. ... He said, "Hagar, Sarai's slave woman, from where have you come, and where are you going?" And she said, "I am fleeing from the presence of my mistress Sarai."

    Genesis 17:15 NASB20 - Then God said to Abraham, "As for your wife Sarai, you shall not call her [by] the name Sarai, but Sarah [shall be] her name.

    Sarah:

    Genesis 17:15, 17, 19, 21 NASB20 - Then God said to Abraham, "As for your wife Sarai, you shall not call her [by] the name Sarai, but Sarah [shall be] her name. ... Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed, and said in his heart, "Will a child be born to a man a hundred years old? And will Sarah, who is ninety years old, give birth [to a child?]" ... But God said, "No, but your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you shall name him Isaac; and I will establish My covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him. ... "But I will establish My covenant with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you at this season next year."

    Genesis 18:6, 9-15 NASB20 - So Abraham hurried into the tent to Sarah, and said, "Quickly, prepare three measures of fine flour, knead [it,] and make bread cakes." ... Then they said to him, "Where is your wife Sarah?" And he said, "There, in the tent." He said, "I will certainly return to you at this time next year; and behold, your wife Sarah will have a son." And Sarah was listening at the tent door, which was behind him. Now Abraham and Sarah were old, advanced in age; Sarah was past childbearing. So Sarah laughed to herself, saying, "After I have become old, am I to have pleasure, my lord being old also?" But the LORD said to Abraham, "Why did Sarah laugh, saying, 'Shall I actually give birth [to a child,] when I am [so] old?' "Is anything too difficult for the LORD? At the appointed time I will return to you, at this time next year, and Sarah will have a son." Sarah denied [it,] however, saying, "I did not laugh"; for she was afraid. And He said, "No, but you did laugh."

    Genesis 20:2, 14, 16, 18 NASB20 - And Abraham said of his wife Sarah, "She is my sister." So Abimelech king of Gerar sent [men] and took Sarah. ... Abimelech then took sheep and oxen and male and female servants, and gave them to Abraham, and returned his wife Sarah to him. ... To Sarah he said, "Look, I have given your brother a thousand pieces of silver. It is your vindication before all who are with you, and before everyone you are cleared." ... For the LORD had completely closed all the wombs of the household of Abimelech because of Sarah, Abraham's wife.

    Genesis 21:1-3, 6-7, 9, 12 NASB20 - Then the LORD took note of Sarah as He had said, and the LORD did for Sarah as He had promised. So Sarah conceived and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the appointed time of which God had spoken to him. Abraham named his son who was born to him, the son whom Sarah bore to him, Isaac. ... Sarah said, "God has made laughter for me; everyone who hears will laugh with me." And she said, "Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? Yet I have given birth to a son in his old age." ... Now Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, mocking [Isaac.] ... But God said to Abraham, "Do not be distressed because of the boy and your slave woman; whatever Sarah tells you, listen to her, for through Isaac your descendants shall be named.

    Genesis 23:1-2, 19 NASB20 - Now Sarah lived 127 years; [these were] the years of the life of Sarah. Sarah died in Kiriath-arba (that is, Hebron) in the land of Canaan; and Abraham came in to mourn for Sarah and to weep for her. ...

    1 Peter 3:6 NASB20 - just as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord; and you have proved to be her children if you do what is right without being frightened by any fear.

    Isaac:

    Genesis 17:19, 21 NASB20 - But God said, "No, but your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you shall name him Isaac; and I will establish My covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him. ... "But I will establish My covenant with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you at this season next year."

    Genesis 21:3-5, 8-10, 12 NASB20 - Abraham named his son who was born to him, the son whom Sarah bore to him, Isaac. Then Abraham circumcised his son Isaac when he was eight days old, as God had commanded him. Now Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him. ... And the child grew and was weaned, and Abraham held a great feast on the day that Isaac was weaned. Now Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, mocking [Isaac.] Therefore she said to Abraham, "Drive out this slave woman and her son, for the son of this slave woman shall not be an heir with my son Isaac!" ... But God said to Abraham, "Do not be distressed because of the boy and your slave woman; whatever Sarah tells you, listen to her, for through Isaac your descendants shall be named.

    Genesis 22:2-3, 6-7, 9 NASB20 - Then He said, "Take now your son, your only son, whom you love, Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I will tell you." So Abraham got up early in the morning and saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him and his son Isaac; and he split wood for the burnt offering, and set out and went to the place of which God had told him. ... And Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering and laid it on his son Isaac, and he took in his hand the fire and the knife. So the two of them walked on together. Isaac spoke to his father Abraham and said, "My father!" And he said, "Here I am, my son." And he said, "Look, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?" ... Then they came to the place of which God had told him; and Abraham built the altar there and arranged the wood, and bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood.

    Genesis 24:4, 14, 62-64, 66-67 NASB20 - but you will go to my country and to my relatives, and take a wife for my son Isaac." ... now may it be that the young woman to whom I say, 'Please let down your jar so that I may drink,' and who answers, 'Drink, and I will water your camels also'--[may] she [be the one] whom You have appointed for Your servant Isaac; and by this I will know that You have shown kindness to my master." ... Now Isaac had come [back] from a journey to Beer-lahai-roi; for he was living in the Negev. Isaac went out to meditate in the field toward evening; and he raised his eyes and looked, and behold, camels were coming. Rebekah raised her eyes, and when she saw Isaac, she dismounted from the camel. ... The servant told Isaac all the things that he had done. Then Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah's tent, and he took Rebekah, and she became his wife, and he loved her; so Isaac was comforted after his mother's death.

It came about after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son Isaac; and Isaac lived by Beer-lahai-roi. ... Now these are [the records of] the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son: Abraham fathered Isaac; and Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah, the daughter of Bethuel the Aramean of Paddan-aram, the sister of Laban the Aramean, to be his wife. Isaac prayed to the LORD on behalf of his wife, because she was unable to have children; and the LORD answered him, and his wife Rebekah conceived. ... Afterward his brother came out with his hand holding on to Esau's heel, so he was named Jacob; and Isaac was sixty years old when she gave birth to them. ... Now Isaac loved Esau because he had a taste for game; but Rebekah loved Jacob.

Then Abimelech called Isaac and said, "Behold, she certainly is your wife! So how [is it that] you said, 'She is my sister'?" And Isaac said to him, "Because I thought, 'otherwise I might be killed on account of her.'" ... Now Isaac sowed in that land and reaped in the same year a hundred times [as much.] And the LORD blessed him, ... Then Abimelech said to Isaac, "Go away from us, for you are too powerful for us." So Isaac departed from there and camped in the Valley of Gerar, and settled there. Then Isaac dug again the wells of water which had been dug in the days of his father Abraham, for the Philistines had stopped them up after the death of Abraham; and he gave them the same names which his father had given them. ... the herdsmen of Gerar quarreled with the herdsmen of Isaac, saying, "The water is ours!" So he named the well Esek, because they argued with him. ... Isaac said to them, "Why have you come to me, since you hate me and have sent me away from you?" ...

So when Esau went to the field to hunt for game to bring [home,] ... Isaac said to his son, "How is it that you have [it] so quickly, my son?" And he said, "Because the LORD your God made [it] come to me." Then Isaac said to Jacob, "Please come close, so that I may feel you, my son, whether you are really my son Esau or not." So Jacob came close to his father Isaac, and he touched him and said, "The voice is the voice of Jacob, but the hands are the hands of Esau." ...

Then Isaac trembled violently, and said, "Who then was he who hunted game and brought [it] to me, so that I ate from all [of it] before you came, and blessed him? Yes, [and] he shall be blessed." ... But Isaac replied to Esau, "Behold, I have made him your master, and I have given to him all his relatives as servants; and with grain and new wine I have sustained him. What then can I do for you, my son?" ... Then his father Isaac answered and said to him, "Behold, away from the fertility of the earth shall be your dwelling, And away from the dew of heaven from above. ... And Rebekah said to Isaac, "I am tired of living because of the daughters of Heth; if Jacob takes a wife from the daughters of Heth like these from the daughters of the land, what good will my life be to me?"

    Genesis 16:1, 3-4, 8, 15-16 NASB20 - Now Sarai, Abram's wife, had not borne him a child, but she had an Egyptian slave woman whose name was Hagar. ... And [so] after Abram had lived ten years in the land of Canaan, Abram's wife Sarai took Hagar the Egyptian, her slave woman, and gave her to her husband Abram as his wife. Then he had relations with Hagar, and she conceived; and when [Hagar] became aware that she had conceived, her mistress was insignificant in her sight. ... He said, "Hagar, Sarai's slave woman, from where have you come, and where are you going?" And she said, "I am fleeing from the presence of my mistress Sarai." ... So Hagar bore a son to Abram; and Abram named his son, to whom Hagar gave birth, Ishmael. Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar bore Ishmael to him.

    Genesis 21:9, 14, 17 NASB20 - Now Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, mocking [Isaac.] ... So Abraham got up early in the morning and took bread and a skin of water, and gave [them] to Hagar, putting [them] on her shoulder, and [gave her] the boy, and sent her away. And she departed and wandered about in the wilderness of Beersheba. ... God heard the boy crying; and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, "What is the matter with you, Hagar? Do not fear, for God has heard the voice of the boy where he is.

    Genesis 25:12 NASB20 - Now these are [the records of] the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's slave woman, bore to Abraham;

    Galatians 4:24-25 NASB20 - This is speaking allegorically, for these [women] are two covenants: one [coming] from Mount Sinai giving birth to children who are to be slaves; she is Hagar. Now this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to the present Jerusalem, for she is enslaved with her children.

    Ishmael:

    Genesis 16:11, 15-16 NASB20 - The angel of the LORD said to her further, "Behold, you are pregnant, And you will give birth to a son; And you shall name him Ishmael, Because the LORD has heard your affliction. ... So Hagar bore a son to Abram; and Abram named his son, to whom Hagar gave birth, Ishmael. Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar bore Ishmael to him.

    Genesis 17:18, 20, 23, 25-26 NASB20 - And Abraham said to God, "Oh that Ishmael might live before You!" ... "As for Ishmael, I have heard you; behold, I will bless him, and make him fruitful and multiply him exceedingly. He shall father twelve princes, and I will make him into a great nation. ... Then Abraham took his son Ishmael, and all [the slaves] who were born in his house and all who were bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham's household, and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin on this very same day, as God had said to him. ... And his son Ishmael was thirteen years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. On this very same day Abraham was circumcised, as well as his son Ishmael.

    Genesis 21:11 NASB20 - The matter distressed Abraham greatly because of his son [Ishmael.]

    Genesis 25:9, 12-13, 16-17 NASB20 - Then his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, facing Mamre, ... Now these are [the records of] the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's slave woman, bore to Abraham; and these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, in the order of their birth: Nebaioth, the firstborn of Ishmael, Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam, ... These are the sons of Ishmael and these are their names, by their villages, and by their camps; twelve princes according to their tribes. These are the years of the life of Ishmael, 137 years; and he breathed his last and died, and was gathered to his people.

    Genesis 28:9 NASB20 - and Esau went to Ishmael, and married, besides the wives that he had, Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael, Abraham's son, the sister of Nebaioth.

    1 Chronicles 1:28-29, 31 NASB20 - The sons of Abraham [were] Isaac and Ishmael. These are their genealogies: the firstborn of Ishmael [was] Nebaioth, then Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam, ... Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah; these [were] the sons of Ishmael.

    There are other people who have been named Ishmael in the Bible as well. But this is the first son of Abram (Abraham).

    Genesis 14:13 NASB20 - Then a survivor came and told Abram the Hebrew. Now he was residing by the oaks of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol and brother of Aner, and they were allies with Abram.

    Joseph, a descendant, is also spoken of as a Hebrew. And others. These are descendants of Isaac. Being that Abram was a Hebrew, wouldn't his descendants be Hebrews as well?

    started a topic Avram, Avraham, and the Hebrews.

    Avram, Avraham, and the Hebrews.

    The Bible says that Abraham was a Hebrew.

    Does that make his descendants, Isaac and Ishmael, Hebrews as well or too?
