    Jerry the trinity is the very kingdom of god as abraham offered up his only son isaac so did god almighty offer up his only son christ jesus thats what abraham means exaulted father thus abraham issac and jacob are a perfect picture of the kingdom of god which is father son and granson that is gona initiate the israel of god a greater israel then abrahams seed a heavenly israel th kingdom of god.

    Well, If it was me and my only child daughter , I would be in Hell now, because I would not do it. Sorry Lord. She would still be alive.
  • ALEX
    Just as abraham issac and jacob were father son and granson that resulted in the nation of israel the sand by the seas that promise that god made to abraham etc the heavenly kingdom is also father son and granson that will initiate the israel of god which is the h.g. the promise seed that is gona be sown in humanity resulting in a birth of th h.g in us, being bornagain of an incorruptible seed gbu
  • Teri
    yes, we definitely have to look on the passage with the character of God in mind to see that Abraham knew God would intervene, somehow?
  • Alex
    Natural israel was the result of abrahams seed but the israel of god is the result of christ and his seed the word. i will multiply thy seed as the stars of heaven thus the sower and his seed planted in humanity, jesus said the field was the world humanity thats y jeremiah saw the world in travail and birth pains 27 times the prophets saw this world in travail and birth pains i.e the israel of god
  • Lou
    Many lessons from God here. First, God wants Mercy, not sacrifice. No sacrifice of self or another. GOD WANTS MERCY. He shows it to Abraham freely. Secondly, only God can provide The Lamb He will accept

    Verse 3~Abraham did not fully understand Jehovah God's request but he showed great faith in being willing to obey.
  • Lauren
    DBL: Child-sacrifice is not being promoted here, nor is the promise threatened. God already planned out that Isaac wasn't going to actually die and the promise given to Abraham would still be fulfilled. Regardless of the seemingly contradictory command, Abraham still trusted that God wouldn't break his promise, which was what truly demonstrated his faith. (Hebrews 11:17-19)
  • DBL
    Genesis 22 is a controversial passage in the Bible as it is a representation of the savagery of God. The undeniable request of Abraham contradicts the ideals of God. First, the concept of child-sacrifice later abhorred by God is promoted in this passage. Also, the violation of God's covenant to expand the Israelites through Isaac is obviously threatened. How can God ask contradictory things?
  • ALEX
    We see a beautiful picture of the kingdom of God in Abraham Issac and Jacob just as Abraham offered up issac his only son God almighty offered up his only son Christ Jesus, the Ram caught in the thicket by his Horns was symbolic of Christ and his Crown of thorns,thus we see the Kingdom of God in Abraham Issac and Jacob, thus its CHRIST that is gona be multiplied as the STARS OF HEAVEN BY HIS SEED.
  • ALEX
    THAT GREAT PROMISE THAT GOD MADE TO ABRAHAM ABOUT MULTIPLICATION WAS JUST A METAPHOR THAT GOD HIMSELF WD BE MULTIPLIED IN HUMANITY VIA THE SEED OF THE SOWER TH WORD OF GOD WHICH IS THE VERY SEED OF GOD THATS Y JESUS IS SAYING TO WHOM THE WORD/SEED CAME IT MADE THEM GODS, THE H.G. IS THAT PROMISE SEED AND CHRIST IS THE FATHER OF THE H.G SIMPLY B/C HE IS TH SON THAT SOWS THAT SEED N OUR HEARTS GBU.

    Abraham knew that his son would not die, it clearly states "And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you." I and the lad, will go yonder and worship, and come again to you, That part there means that he trusted in the lord and knew his heavenly father wouldn't accept his offering.
  • Alex
    The nation of israel was the direct result of the Promise God made to Abraham via his seed etc,But the multiplication of Christ via his seed the word sown in humanity will result in the Israel of God But the seed of abraham were not the real children of PROMISE ITS CHRIST AND HIS SEED THAT ARE THE REAL CHILDREN OF PROMISE WHICH ARE SPIRITS TH H,G. MANY, THATS Y HE REFERS TO THE H,G AS THE PROMISE.
  • Alex
    the Godhead is simply Father Son n Granson, Abraham was just a type of GOD THE FATHER THAT WANTED A POSTERITY GRANSONS THAT WD BE AS THE SAND OF THE SEAS,NATURAL ISRAEL BUT THAT WAS JUST ALIGORICAL THAT GOD WD BE MULTIPLIED AS THE STARS OF HEAVEN IN HUMANITY.JESUS CD NOT REFER TO THE HG AS THE PROMISE IF HE WERE NOT THE GRANSON,THAT WAS THE ORIGINAL PROMISE THAT ABRAHAM WD HAVE GRAND CHILDREN.

    YOU HAVE TO GO ALL THE WAY WITH GOD OR NOTHING WORKS
  • Alex
    THE Ram caught in the thicket by his HORNS was symbolic of Christ and his Crown of thorns Jesus was caught in the thicket of th sins of the world thus he was truly the LAMB OF GOD THAT WD TAKE AWAY THE SINS OF THE WORLD. WHEN THE JEWS SAW THE CROWN OF THORNS ON HIS HEAD THEY REMEMBERED THE RAM CAUGHT IN THE THICKET BY HIS HORNS.THE LORD WILL PROVIDE A LAMB ABRAHAM TOLD ISSAC Behold the LAMB of God
  • Susan Hanson
    When there are questions concerning evil, disasters, disease, misfortune perhaps we should remember Abraham and trust.

    Verse 3~Abraham had an extraordinary amount of faith in God. He was willing to sacrifice much. Jehovah God blessed him and used him as an example in what he would do centuries later in offering up the life of his son Jesus Christ.
  • Servant of God
    God requires everything with nothing held back in the form of human attachment. So Abraham offered up Issac who didn't quibble but trusted Abraham even as he held the knife to slay him that God will provide himself a sacrifice. Abraham demonstrated in real time his faith, and why not? God had appeared to him and prepared him to be a father of many nations. Those are the Jews first, Christians,
  • Alex
    Abraham was symbolic of Father GOD THAT wanted a Posterity but was asked to offer up his only son Isaac a type of the lamb of GOD CAUGHT IN THE THICKET BY HIS HORNS ( HIS CROWN OF THORNS ) POINTS TO HIM BEING THAT RAM CAUGHT IN THE THICKET BY HIS HORNS, OUT OF ISAAC came Esau n Jacob the 2 Israels 1 born of the flesh and 1 born of the spirit, the 2 nd is always that which is born of the Spirit.
  • 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
  • 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.
  • Freda
    The Lord will test our Faith and obedience to him. God gave his only son who died for our sins. We will be tested time after time yet we must remain Faithful!
  • Salem
    Comment* If Atall Abraham Had Restrained Giving Up Isaac Having Been Afriend Of God And Asource Of The Earth's Blessings, God Could By no Means Give Jesus As Aramson.Forget Not That The Word Ramson,has Two Powerful Words; Ram and Son.So Jesus Was The Ram That Represented The Only Beloved Son Isaac Of The Everlasting Convenant.
