Abraham and Many Nations

Abraham was promised that he would become the father of many nations.

He did become the physical father of a number of nations.

However, what the promise really foresaw was that Abraham would become the father of faith, to all who believe - in all nations.

Paul told the Corinthians that although they had many teachers, they didn't have many fathers, for Paul himself had begotten them through the Gospel.

You can beget people through the Gospel.

As John the Baptist said, God is able to raise up sons to Abraham even through means other than direct physical genealogy.
