Thesis:The promises were made to only one "seed" and their fulfillment will only be fully realized when He is on the earth as "Christ".

Introduction:Last time we looked into the content of the "promises" that were made to Abraham and to his seed. We saw that those "promises" had their roots in the problem of Death and were given to counter the effectiveness of any "temptation" that could bring Death into the picture. In general we can say that the promises addressed "man" as a physical, soulish, spiritual, entity and addressed the basic needs that each of those three aspects of his being indicated. The basic needs of man as a physical being consist of duration and freedom from pain or degeneration of any kind. Said another way, the body is designed for eternal pleasure. The basic needs of man as a soul consist of relational unity with God as Spirit and freedom from fear of any kind. Said another way, the soul is designed for eternal joy flowing from God. The basic needs of man as a spirit consist of functional capacity and freedom from denigration of any kind. Said another way, the spirit of man is designed to energize his body to function in order to accomplish genuinely significant goals.

Tonight we are going to look into the reason Paul insisted upon the identity of the "seed" as "Christ".
