Abstracts
John the Baptist (Mt 3:9 and Lk 3:8) questions the fact if being a descendent of Abraham is enough for salvation. A fact that someone is a son of Abraham is not enough. Baptism itself is not enough. It is necessary to bring fruits of conversion. One cannot force God with anything to anything, not even with the blood connections with the Abraham himself. John the Baptist announces judgment, not only to goyim but also to 'am.
Jesus Christ (Mt 8:11; Lk 13:8) does not only question the certainty of the salvation based on bodily ties with Abraham but He also opens a new dimension of belonging to Abraham and the promises made to him. That new dimension lies in faith. A man has to pass through the narrow door of faith. That entrance is opened to the gentiles and through faith, Abraham becomes their father. In the vertical YHVH-Abraham, a unique link has been inserted. CHRIST is the most excellent and promised and unique Abraham's descendent. Now, it is possible to belong to Abraham only through that link (Mt l: 1-16). Christ is the inevitable link of Identification with Abraham's descendents as witnessed by the Apostle Paul in his letter to Galatians: »And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's descendants, heirs according to the promise.« (Gal 3:29).
