What would Isaac do?

Sacrifice himself to his father’s God (verses 9-14).

That’s more faith than I have.

Deep Faith

In verses 3-8, Abraham says, “The boy and I will go over there and worship, and then we will come back to you.”

When Isaac asks about missing a lamb, Abraham replies, “God himself will provide one.”

Both quotes indicate that despite God’s brutal request, Abraham continues to have faith in God’s goodness.

In verse 20, we read that Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau.

This surprises me. Jacob was blessed, but Esau was left almost nothing.
