Cain & Abel
Abel was a good shepherd, who offered an acceptable sacrifice to God. But Abel’s great favor with God provoked the hatred of his brother, Cain, who murdered him in cold blood. After death, Abel’s blood cried out to the Lord for justice, and the author of Hebrews specifically cites this fact as evidence of resurrection power. Does the story of a good shepherd, who unjustly suffers death, but then speaks through resurrection power beyond the grave sound familiar? Learn how the sacrifice of Abel was a preview of the even greater sacrifice of Jesus to come!
