“You will go to your ancestors in peace and be buried at a good old age.” GENESIS 15:15 It is said cynically that in this life only two things are certain –  death and taxes. When Abraham’s life was still not yet half gone, God told him of his eventual passing. And 10 chapters later,...

Then I bowed my head and worshipped the Lord… who had led me by the right way… GENESIS 24:48 The “I” speaking here is Abraham’s oldest servant.
