Abraham was asked of God to give up his son for a burning sacrifice. To give up that which he loved the most before God as a test of his obedience. God would have never allowed Abraham's child to be burned, but because of his willingness to obey, God provided instead a ram, which was caught in a thicket for a burning sacrifice. In the scriptures there's a clever wordplay which reads "God will 'provide Himself' a lamb for a burnt offering." This is the substitutionary sacrifice alluding to the slain lamb for all humanity, which is Jesus Christ.This piece explores emotionally what Abraham might have gone through fulfilling such a request by God. Abraham and his son walk the mountainous terrain navigating the valley between.
