We have then, the heirship and its principles and effects having been stated generally, the manner of accomplishment of the blessing in figure, and the extraordinary course, which was taken with the Heir, by reason of sin, and here we find the promise confirmed to the seed (Christ), which had not been mentioned. since Abram's call—for all between was strictly, properly, Jewish, though the change of name might, as to the election, be extended to the Gentiles—"In thee shall all families of the earth be blessed."
In this most beautiful chapter of his personal intercourse with Him, who, if He spared Abraham, did not spare Himself in giving His Son, we have the principle clearly brought in—the inheritance is taken in resurrection, and therefore on a sacrifice which can purify the joint-heirs to be with Him, according to the power of that resurrection, while many blessings may come therewith to the natural seed.
