Parsha in 60 Seconds Presents Vayeira

Shalom and welcome to the Parsha in 60 seconds

Today’s portion is from Genesis 18:1–22:24 it is called Vayeira which means “and He appeared,”

Abraham meets God with two angels. The Lord said Sarah would have a son, Sarah LOLed.

God told Abraham about destroying Sodom and Gomorrah. Abraham asked if God would kill the innocent. God said He would not destroy the cities if there were 10 righteous people.
Meanwhile, Lot was at the gate of Sodom the two angels arrived. While they were at Lot’s house all the men of Sodom gathered and demanded the men be sent out. Lot offered his two virgin daughters. This caused a riot. The Angels took lot and his Family out of the city. The family was instructed not to look back but Lot’s wife disobeyed and into a pillar of salt. Lot’s daughters wanted to have children and devised a plan to get Lot drunk and sleep with him. They succeeded and had sons.

Abraham settled Gerar and tired to pull the same stunt he pulled in Egypt, but God warned King Abimelech he gave Sarah back.

Isaac was born and was circumcised eight days later. After he was weaned, Abraham sent Hagar and Ishmael away.

Abraham made an oath with Abimelech not to mess with him. God tested Abraham, directing him to offer Isaac as a burnt offering. As Abramaham raised the knife to kill Isaac an angel stopped Abraham. God provided a ram, so he offered it as a burnt offering in place of his son. Abraham passed the test and was blessed

And that is Vayeira in 60 seconds.
