Hagar


Quick Reference

*Abraham's Egyptian concubine and slave who bore Ishmael (Gen. 16: 1–4) but was dispatched into the wilderness by the jealous wife Sarah. It is used by Paul (Gal. 4: 21–31) to provide confirmation by allegorical interpretation that the religion of the Law was a form of slavery which Christians have rejected and from which they have claimed freedom.
