ABUNDANCE Abundance in the Bible is of two types-physical, or earthly, and spiritual. The two are interrelated, for earthly abundance is consistently portrayed as a blessing from God, who gives it as a reward for covenant keeping or simply out of grace. On a spiritual level the vocabulary of abundance is related to such large and overriding issues as salvation, miracles, reward, evil and honor to God. References are found in both Testaments, and some images recur as themes in both. Overall, images of abundance are used in the Bible primarily as a means of inspiring worship or of encouraging obedience to God.

The second two are so interrelated that they can be covered together. The keynotes of Paul’s references to Abraham are the motifs of faith and promise. Faith, which is largely implicit in Genesis and absent in the rest of the OT [OT OT. Old Testament] , forms the cornerstone of Paul’s use of Abraham as an image of faith in contrast to the law and circumcision, with special focus on Genesis 15:6 (Rom 4:2–5; Rom 6–12). Circumcision serves merely as a “seal” of the righteousness of faith (Rom 4:11).
