SARAH – Jean’s Original Pastel Biblical Art
Sarah’s story unfolds in Genesis 11:27 and spans all the way to the end of chapter 23. She had a long, active, adventurous life. She seemed always to buck the system, and she had a flawed personality which caused her many troubles along the way. Chief among those flaws was a lack of faith that God would keep his word for her that she would bear a son, who would produce the heirs to a great nation. Throughout her long story, there doesn’t seem to be a real, “gotcha” kind of defining moment. I have depicted what I think may have been her defining moment from Genesis 18; 9-15 when God spoke to her concerning this, as she eavesdropped on a conversation between Him and her husband, Abraham.
