12 Christians with no inheritance
Galatians 3:9 So then, those who are of faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.
Galatians 3:29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
After the death of Sarah Abraham took Keturah as his wife. Isaac received the promise and the inheritance of Abraham. From this wife Abraham had 6 children and 7 grand children.
Genesis 25:1-6 1 Abraham married another wife, whose name was Keturah. 2 She bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah. 3 Jokshan became the father of Sheba and Dedan. The descendants of Dedan were the Asshurim, the Letushim, and the Leummim. 4 The descendants of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abida, and Eldaah. All of these were descendants of Keturah. 5 Abraham deeded everything that he owned to his son Isaac. 6 To his sons by concubinage, however, he made grants while he was still living, as he sent them away eastward, to the land of Kedem, away from his son Isaac.
The meanings of their names represent sins of the church. Keturah means incense. According to Arab tradition she died close to Mecca.
