Genesis 23


1. What big wheel dealer have you been warned about in your town? Are you afraid you might not get the better of a deal? Or would you bargain anyway?

2. Why might Abraham not want to bury Sarah in one of the Hittite’s tombs? Likewise, why doesn’t Abraham bury Sarah where their ancestors live (Mesopotamia), as was the custom in his day?

3. What can you learn from Abraham about a husband’s love for his wife?

4. What arrangements have you made for your funeral? If you haven’t made any, how come?

Interesting Fact: Sarah is the only woman in Scripture whose age is mentioned.
