*Correction/Clarification: At minute mark 15:50, Jesse reads Genesis 15:1 and talks about the word "reward." The context for this passage comes off the heels of Abram winning a battle against some kings (Gen. 14:13-16), receiving a blessing from a priest named Melchizedek (Gen. 14:17-20), and refusing to take any spoils from the battle (Gen. 14:21-24).

Genesis 15:1 ESV
After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision: "Fear not, Abram, I am your shield; your reward shall be very great."

Abram refused any "reward" after his victorious battle and God took this opportunity to remind him that God had a blessing better than spoils of war planned for him.

Episode Summary: Abraham was consistent in his belief that God would fulfill His promises ... but sometimes he wanted to exercise control. Sometimes Abraham wanted to see things through on his own terms.
