The descendants of Abraham (Gal. 3:7)


You see

Those who believe

Are the descendants

Of Abraham.”

Γινώσκετε ἄρα ὅτι οἱ ἐκ πίστεως, οὗτοι υἱοί εἰσιν Ἀβραάμ.

Paul said, “Thus, you see those who believe (Γινώσκετε ἄρα ὅτι οἱ ἐκ πίστεως) are the descendants of Abraham (οὗτοι υἱοί εἰσιν Ἀβραάμ).”  Paul then added that those who believe are the true sons or descendants of Abraham.  All who believe in God and Jesus Christ are then the true offspring of Abraham.  This is not an ancestry tree as some would make them believe.  The connection with Abraham was belief not human genealogy.  Do you consider yourself a descendant of Abraham?
