Genesis 22 is one of my favorite passages in Scripture.
I love the 2 wonderful symbols of the Lord Jesus in this chapter:
1. Isaac - an only son, loved by his father, willing to do his father's will, and, in a figure, raised back from the dead
2. the ram - innocent victim died as a substitute for another, its blood was shed, it was a burnt offering, wholly consumed for God
Someone has said that, in providing the ram as a substitute for Isaac, "God spared Abraham's heart a pang He would not spare His own."
May we consider our Savior's resurrection every day, and not just at this time of year.
2 Corinthians 5:21 : "For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him."
