Terah and Halfway Christians

Terah Died in Haran
When God called Abraham, his father Terah went along. Why did Terah stop in Haran? Why didn’t he make it to the Promised Land? What can Terah’s tarrying teach us to prevent us being halfway Christians? Professor Walter J. Veith explains in this typological Bible study on the call of Abraham.

The meaning of Abram’s father’s name, Terah, is “one who delays.” Terah had begun the journey toward Canaan but fell short of it and died in Haran. How far are we prepared to go? Will we perseveringly follow Christ into the heavenly Canaan, or will we tarry, eat the poisonous tares mingled with the bread of life, and die in Haran?
