Comparing Scriptures for “Promise,” “Inherit”

Abraham’s Promise

Romans 15:8 is our foundational verse upon which we are building the whole study of Abraham’s Promise:

 Jesus came to confirm the promises

Romans 15:8 Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm (“establish” – “to set and fix firmly” – Webster)  the promises made unto the fathers.


Mark 16:20 And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with [them], and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

(This verse is interesting from the Rotherham translation:  (16:20) They, on the other hand, going forth, proclaimed on every side, the Lord, co–working, and confirming, the word, through, the closely following signs.] OTHERWISE. [All the things given in charge unto the companions of Peter, they concisely reported. But, after these things, Jesus also, himself, from east even unto west, sent forth, through them, the sacred and incorruptible proclamation of the age–abiding salvation.])

Thy fathers: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob

Acts 7:32 Saying, I am the God of thy FATHERS, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Then Moses trembled, and durst not behold.

 Our father David

Mark 11:10 Blessed be the kingdom of our FATHER David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.

 Hebrews 6:11-12 And we desire that every one of you do show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end: 12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

 The kingdom of God = the promises given to the fathers

1 Corinthians 15:50 “…flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God…”

James 2:5 Listen, my dear brothers: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him?(NIV)

 Jesus was also sent to proclaim the promises

Luke 4:43 but He said to them, “I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, because for this purpose I have been sent.”
