Your father Abraham… saw it and was glad.


  • Thinking about the statement that Jesus said in John 8:56, where and how did Abraham see Jesus’ day? and how did Abraham rejoiced?
  • Going to the book of Genesis we see that Abraham met the Lord few times
  • Interestingly the first communion was that that Melchizedek had with Abraham
  • Abraham was blessed in many ways from having in-numerous children and by having Jesus in his descendants


    • Joh 8:56  Your father Abraham rejoiced that he would see my day. He saw it and was glad.” Joh 8:57  So the Jews said to him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?” Joh 8:58  Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.” Joh 8:59  So they picked up stones to throw at him, but Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple.
    • Gen 12:1  Now the LORD said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. Gen 12:2  And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. Gen 12:3  I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
    • Gen 14:18  And Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. (He was priest of God Most High.) Gen 14:19  And he blessed him and said, “Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth; Gen 14:20  and blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand!” And Abram gave him a tenth of everything.
    • Gen 17:15  And God said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name.
    • Heb 2:16  For truly He did not take the nature of angels, but He took hold of the seed of Abraham. Heb 2:17  Therefore in all things it behoved him to be made like His brothers, that He might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of His people. Heb 2:18  For in that He Himself has suffered, having been tempted, He is able to rescue those who are being tempted.
    • Gal 3:16  And to Abraham and to his Seed the promises were spoken. It does not say, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, “And to your Seed,” which is Christ.
