What does it mean that God would make Abram’s name great? It means three things that I’ll unpack. First, it means that God, not Abram, would make a new name for Abraham. Second, that through Jesus God would bring a great nation out of Abraham’s lineage, the Christian Church. Third, when God named Abraham, he spoke in divine language. Abraham then passed on the knowledge contained in God’s language to his offspring, you and me, but we need the Holy Spirit to understand it.
