Rev. Sean Daenzer, pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church in Great Bend & Peace Lutheran Church in Barney, North Dakota, studies Hebrews 11:11-12 on today’s episode: “By faith Sarah herself received power to conceive, even when she was past the age, since she considered him faithful who had promised. Therefore from one man, and him as good as dead, were born descendants as many as the stars of heaven and as many as the innumerable grains of sand by the seashore.” Rev. Daenzer talks about the Church in Christ in Abraham’s loins, resurrection from “as good as dead,” and the parallel to Isaac’s offering contradiction.
