Genesis 13:1–18 (ESV)

1 So Abram went up from Egypt, he and his wife and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the Negeb.

As in Genesis 12:1–20, the promise to Abram of possessing the land and having numerous offspring has a spiritual dimension that comes to full view in the New Testament (Romans 4:16; Romans 9:7; Galatians 3:16).1 It ultimately points to Christ as the seed, and to those who believe and are saved in Christ Jesus as the “descendants.”
