Reapplications of the Blessing of Abraham

31

When the blessing of Abraham is reapplied in various parts of the Old Testament, it clearly tends towards a universalistic sense. Here we will analyse a few Old Testament texts to show the universalistic sense in the blessing of Abraham by Yahweh. We will also look into the understanding of St. Luke and St. Paul in Acts of the Apostles and in the Letter to the Galatians respectively. This is to see the early Christians’ understanding of the blessing of Abraham, thereby to substantiate the universalistic sense in the blessing of Abraham by Yahweh.
