In a story once the conflict has been identified the hero, God in this case, works to overcome the conflict. Even in the garden we saw God starting this process. Here we see God in full swing. God chooses Abraham to become a nation. That nation is the nation of Israel. The purpose is to have the world recognize God through a specific people during a specific time. This shows that God is active in the world and is working to redeem the world through Israel.
- Genesis 12:1 - 3
