I, myself, had been threatened and even shot at.For me, this seventh story apartment became a hiding place.

It was also here that some of my dreams of long ago came true.Shortly after my salvation in 1978, I started studying the life of Abraham. It was a major turning point in my life to understand and appreciate the life of our great forefather.As I’m sure many believers do, I felt a strong connection to Abraham on many levels. For one, and most importantly, he is the father of faith. All who come to Jesus are reaping benefits of the covenant God made with Abraham to bless all the families of the earth through him.I also related to Abraham as an Arab and thereby a descendant of his natural son Ishmael.

People may dispute whether today’s Arabs are actually descendants of Ishmael and there may be no way to really prove it. Since the Apostle Paul warns against obsessions with endless genealogies, I don’t think it really matters.But there is so much in the story of Ishmael that answered so many questions and healed so many hurts in my life. I understood Ishmael’s jealousy of Isaac. I felt so deeply the sense of rejection he must have known as well as the sense of helplessness to ever overcome it.
