Hagar Bible Study Lesson
Hagar Bible Story Concerns
It's been ten years now that Abram has been living in Canaan and the
last time he talked to God, he told Sarai (Sarah) that the Lord told
him that if he could look up to Heaven and count the stars, that's
how many descendants he would have. Well, the promises that Abram
keeps talking about seems to be getting a little old to Sarai.
Sarai's impatience and lack of faith gets the best of her. You see,
she had an Egyptian handmaid whose name was Hagar. So, Sarai said to
Abram, Look now, the Lord has kept me from having children. Take
Hagar and maybe we can have a child by her.
Oh, what a can of worms that opened. Does that remind you that this
isn't the first time a woman's advice has been a man's heartache?
Once Hagar had conceived, she despised Sarai and vice versa. When she
told Abram about the animosity, he told Sarai to deal with it however
she saw fit.

Sarai demonstrated regret of her idea by dealing harshly with Hagar,
and Hagar ran away. The angel of the Lord found her by a fountain in
the wilderness and asked her where she was going. Hagar said that she

and obey Sarai, and told her that she would have so many descendants
that they can't be counted. Does that ring a bell?
Then the Angel told her that she was going to have a son and that she
should call him Ishmael because the Lord heard her affliction. And he
will be a wild man and he will be in conflict with every man and
every man will be in conflict against him and he'll live with all his
So Hagar returned, and gave birth to a son and Abram
named him Ishmael. Abram was 86 years old when Ishmael was born.
