    Abraham, Isaac and Human Sacrifice



    Abraham, Isaac and Human Sacrifice (Part 1) - YouTube

    In Genesis 22:1, 2 we are told that God "tempted" Abraham when He asked him to perform a pagan ritual by sacrificing his son, Isaac. Yet, it was a ritual that God expresses hatred towards in other parts of scripture (Lev. 18:21; 20:2-4; Deut. 12:31; 2 Kings 21:6; Jer. 7:31; 19:5; 32:35; Eze. 20:31). Sadly, this has left some to question the loving character of God and others to use this passage as justification for murder. In this three part teaching series, we will study the narrative very carefully and discover that God never told Abraham to slay his son nor did He tell him to burn him as a sacrifice. We will also see that Abraham himself misunderstood God's command to him.

    Genesis 22: 2 And he said, Take now thy son, thine only*son*Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.
    3And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.
    4Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.
    5And 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.
    6And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid*it*upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.

    Genesis 22: 7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here*am*I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where*is*the lamb for a burnt offering?
    8And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.
    9And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
    10And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.
    11And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here*am*I.
    12And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only*son*from me.
    13And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind*him*a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.


    Abraham's faith was intact before he even raised the knife.
