Abraham was a remarkable man. Abraham was the father of the faithful (Romans 4:16). Although God told Abraham to offer Isaac on an altar, he believed God could raise his son from the dead (Hebrews 11:17-19).

The pattern of Isaac and Abraham is seen in us. We sin and God gives us the chance to be forgiven (Romans 3:23; 6:23). Jesus is the “Lamb of God” which is offered for all of us (John 1:29; 3:16; 15:13). Revelation 5:9 tells us that Christ has redeemed us from “every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.” He was raised from the dead (Acts 2:24, 32). It is our purpose to preach the “everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth” (Revelation 14:6). Just like Abraham did not withhold his son from God, God did not withhold His Son from us. He was willing to lift him up for our forgiveness (John 3:14).

If we miss the beautiful patterns in scripture, we will fail to appreciate the grand foreshadowings that God uses to tell the greatest story in history.
