In this episode, I discuss the birth of Isaac and the sending out of Hagar and Ishmael.
Within this video, I explore how the story of Hagar in Genesis 16 is an anticipation of bondage in Egypt and a repetition of the Fall.
This, the twelfth in my series for the twelve days of Christmas, was transcribed by Lorraine O’Neal. If you would be interested in her transcription services—for sermons, lectures, talks, or something else—you can contact her here.
I would very much like to provide transcripts for all of my videos, but I will require more support for this to be affordable. If you would like to help to make this possible, please consider supporting or donating using my Patreon or PayPal accounts. New sponsorship and donations are being earmarked for this specific purpose.

Over the Christmas period, I am posting videos exploring biblical echoes and symmetries in the stories of the nativity in the gospels. In this twelfth and final video I discuss echoes of the story of Hagar and Ishmael in Luke’s gospel.
Why does Paul say that Sarah and Hagar represent two covenants in Galatians 4:21-31? Where can we see this reality in the Old Testament?
