The Promise, Behind the Scenes with Abraham and Sarah. Through examining the deeper meanings encompassing the events in Abraham and Sarah’s lives, we will see how God’s big picture unfolds to foreshadow and point directly forward to the Messiah, Jesus Christ.
During the journey leading to the offspring that predates Jesus, Abraham and Sarah will be blessed by the Lord with His seven-fold Covenant, which will, in turn, be a Promise to all humanity.
“And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you, I will curse, and in you, all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
As we follow God’s Word concerning Abraham and Sarah, we will also discover why they are considered to be the Patriarch and Matriarch of Judaism and Christianity.
Laying the foundations of Judaism, as well as foreshadowing Christianity through their future descendants, the history of Israel and Judaism will unfurl, and in turn, will point forward and culminate with the birth of the Messiah, Jesus Christ.
Through Jesus, God’s Master Plan will be realized, and His Promises will be kept, blessing all humanity.
So let’s begin our journey of going behind the scenes with Abraham and Sarah, with all of its twists and turns, as God so likes to punctuate His Word.

About the Author
Jana Jones McDowell DVM, DAVCA, DAVECC, has spent a lifetime practicing Veterinary Medicine and former Professor at a College of Veterinary Medicine.
A Christian, Dr. Jones, began her research into Biblical studies several years ago, focusing on “context.”
Her research revolves around the “context,” with the study and application of the Judaica Books of the Prophets and the Hagiographa (A new English translation of the Hebrew Masoretic text and commentaries by Rashi and other Rabbinical scholars), and the books of the Midrash Rabbah. The basis of this was the exegesis of the Hebrew Bible with application to the origins of Christianity.
Dr. Jones-McDowell continues her research on the Jewish roots of Christianity as a student of the Israel Bible Center.
Dr. Jones-McDowell and her husband reside in the southwest with their horses, a Bengal cat named Ravi and their border collie, Sarah.
