the sons of Abraham

When I read the title of this story, both kids cheered -- they were glad that Abraham and Sarah were FINALLY getting the children that Yahweh promised them. Of course, Zoo Boy then noted, "Why is it in these stories everyone is always giving birth to sons? SOMEONE must have had daughters!" Astute kid. Above is J's story drawing, of Hagar and Ishmael leaving Abraham's family (at Sarah's jealous insistence) and traveling into the wilderness. Below is Zoo Boy's drawing, of the well Yahweh provided to Hagar so that she could save Ishmael's life after the food and water Abraham had sent with them ran out.

Above is J's summary, below is Zoo Boy's slightly shorter version.
