Wesley's Notes for Genesis 22:14


22:14 And Abraham called the place Jehovah - jireh - The Lord will provide. Probably alluding to what he had said, #Ge 22:8|. God will provide himself a lamb - This was purely the Lord's doing: let it be recorded for the generations to come; that the Lord will see; he will always have his eyes upon his people in their straits, that he may come in with seasonable succour in the critical juncture. And that he will be seen, be seen in the mount, in he greatest perplexities of his people; he will not only manifest but magnify his wisdom, power and goodness in their deliverance. Where God sees and provides, he should be seen and praised. And perhaps it may refer to God manifest in the flesh.


Discussion for Genesis 22

  • Weser
    Jesus is the Passover Lamb to atone our sins of the whole world!
  • Oliver
    This chapter of the Bible marks a great meaning in human and God relationship and human salvation
    1. the human nature is always to " take" and rarely give as portrayed in infants who alway put in their mouth whatever they grab
    I perceived God must have had goose pimples allover when Abraham willing gave his beloved son Isaac
    2.Isaac signifies Jesus whom GOD gave as a ransom for our sin
  • Anne
    It is notable that Abraham did not tell anyone else about what God had asked him to do. He knew it was God and did not need anyone else's opinion. When God speaks to us we should not hesitate and debate with anyone else, but trust Him completely.
  • Seven Trumpets
    Genesis 22:20 "And it came to pass after these things, that it was told Abraham, saying, Behold, Milcah, she hath also born children unto thy brother Nahor;" An ineresting part "after these things..." because it shows us something, that many of us feel often, as Christians in the world. How many times have we had great experience in God, and after to meet some who seemed only sent to "one up" us?
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    This chapter has important lessons for Christians. It presents a double test of faith and adherence to the command of God. Abraham demonstrated unshakable faith, a trait true Christians should hold dear. He also heeded the command of God not minding the sore consequence. As Christians,"Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it." (John 2:5). God Himself used this episode to herald the sacrifice of Jesus
  • Irene123
    "..... and I and the lad will go ....... and come again to you." This was just br'ot out in this a.m. Bible study. Abraham had FAITH in God, but did he realize what he said here? Or did God put those words in his mouth, un-knowing to Abraham? Abraham actually raised the knife. I just feel that Abraham didn't realize what he had said; and 'feelings' are not a good interpreter of His word.
