Discussion for Genesis 22

  • Alex
    The ram CAUGHT IN THE thicket by his horns answers to Christ J WHEN THEY PUT THAT CROWN OF THORNS ON HIS HEAD it was symbolic of the Ram caught in the thicket by his horns, Jesus was put in the thicket of the sins of the world, thus he was the lamb of God that had to die for the sins of the world, Abraham saw the place afar off like 2000 yrs away at Calvary,Behold the lamb of GOD THAT DIED FOR US.
  • 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.

    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
