Most of us know it, as one of the fist Old Testament sagas. The story unfolds like a soap opera, 'Days of our Disobedience'! When God made a very special promise to Abraham and Sarah, even though they were old, God came through! Every good story has a few shenanigan's from the "promisee's".
We find Sarah, a princess married to a wealthy man-Abraham, barren and miserable without child. She was undoubtedly mocked by the women in her town, but she was also looked down upon by religious leaders. In those days women who had no children were thought to be cursed and unclean before God. Some women were even stoned at their husbands' request. Yes, Sarah needed this promised child.
