Sermon Notes

“So the field of Ephron in Machpelah near Mamre—the field and the cave in it, and all the trees within the field’s boundaries—was officially transferred to Abraham as his property in the presence of the Hittites and of everyone at his city’s gate. After this, Abraham buried his wife Sarah in the cave in the field of Machpelah near Mamre, that is, Hebron, in the land of Canaan. The field and the cave in it were officially transferred from the Hittites to Abraham as his burial property.” Genesis 23:17-20 CEB
