Abraham 2022_web banner.jpg

"God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform;

He plants His footsteps in the sea, and rides upon the storm."

Abraham dramatizes the biblical story of a man called by God to found a new people, through whom the whole world will be blessed. The piece recounts Abraham's faith through a series of tests: he trusts God to lead him to a promised land; he trusts God to provide a promised son; and he trusts God's character when the Lord commands him to make a terrible sacrifice. The theme of this Old Testament story is summed in the New Testament by the Apostle Paul: "Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness" (Rom. 4:3).

 

Abraham: An Oratorio for Worship was premiered in  2014, revised and recorded it in 2015, and we’re offering this third performance in hopes that its message of God’s sovereignty will be even more relevant in our current chaotic and hard-hearted world. Our God is on the throne, He is faithful, and the story of Abraham is a precious reminder of those truths during these tumultuous times.
