Christ Is That Seed of Abraham

“And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed.” 
(Genesis 22:18)

God promised Abraham, saying, “In thy seed shall all the generations of the earth be blessed.” Christ is that Seed of Abraham, saith Paul the apostle (Galatians 3). He hath blessed all the world through the gospel. For where Christ is not, there remains the curse that fell on Adam as soon as he had sinned, so that they are in bondage, under the condemnation of sin, death, and hell. Against this curse the gospel now blesses all the world, inasmuch as it crieth openly unto all that acknowledge their sins and repent, saying, ‘Whosoever believeth on the Seed of Abraham shall be blessed.’, that is, he shall be delivered from sin, death, and hell, and shall henceforth continue righteous, and be saved for ever, as Christ Himself saith, in the eleventh of John, “He that believeth on Me shall never more die.” 

William Tyndale (1500-1536)
