Parsha in 60 Seconds Presents Lech Lechah

Shalom and welcome to the Parsha in 60 seconds

Today’s portion is from Genesis 12:1 – 17:27 it is called Lech Lechah which means “Go!”
God tells Abram to leave home for a land that God would show him. So Abram, Sarai, and his nephew Lot, hit the road.

Due to a famine, Abram went down to Egypt. Because Sarai was drop dead gorgeous Abram was afraid that the pharaoh would kill him and take her. so he said she was his sister, half/truth.

Pharaoh took Sarai as his wife and God afflicted Pharaoh with mighty plagues. As a result pharaoh sent them away.

Abram and Lot decided to split the land and Lot choose the side with the greener grass. Lot was kidnapped. Abram rescued Lot Rambo style. Abram met Melchizedek the priest king and was blessed.

The Word of God appeared to Abram made him count the stars and promised him that many offspring.

10 years later still no children, so Abram slept with Hagar the maid and Ishmale was born. God appeared to Abram and changed his name to Abraham. God commanded that all males under the covenant be circumcised.

God renamed Sarai to Sarah, telling him that Sarah would bear Abraham a son, and Abraham was to name him Isaac.

God blessed Ishmael as well and promised to make him exceedingly numerous. But God would maintain the covenant with Isaac. That same day, Abraham circumcised himself, Ishmael, and every male in his household, as God had directed.

And that is Lech Lechah in 60 seconds.
