Genesis 16

  • Did Hagar have a choice about sleeping with Abraham?
  • The specific spring beside which the angel met Hagar is mentioned.  It was the spring beside the road to Shur.
  • The angel tells Hagar exactly what to name her son. Why is/was God so particular about names?
  • The angel is supposed to be blessing Hagar, yet he is telling her that her son’s hand would be against everybody. Is that supposed to be a blessing? What does it even mean?
  • The well beside which the Angel met Hagar was still in existence at the time of the writing. Makes sense.
  • Although it was Hagar who had met the angel, it was Abram who named Ishmael. Did Hagar tell him the name or did he simply think of it?
