In Genesis, God promises that Abram's offspring would control a bunch of land. This comic was inspired by Genesis 16 when Abram had a child with a servant, and he will later go on to have a child with his wife. As I read the story, both lines of children have been promised this land

But in subsequent bible text, the promise is given to Isaac and not to Ismael. Btw, Sarai knew about Abram having a child with the servant. It was Sarai's servant, not Abram's. And Sarai was it, who told Abram to have a child with the servant. ;)

You are totally right. It was Sarai's servant, and indeed it was all her idea. I probably shouldn't have added the "what's that dear" part. It was really a last moment addition that made me chuckle, but ultimately probably a poor choice to include.

As to the later promise, I would argue that the first promise still seems to apply, at least on the surface.

Thanks for commenting :)
