Description

God's provision and sacrifice, shown through the stories of Isaac, and Jesus.

The story of Abraham sacrificing Isaac is surely one of the most tense moments of the Old Testament. Would God really ask Abraham to give up the most precious thing to him - his own son? We know that God steps in, and provides.

Skip forward to the New Testament and we read a story with close similarities. Jesus, God's only son, is crucified. This time, God allows the sacrifice to take place. Jesus is killed on a cross, and through this act of love God is again providing - provided a way for us to get right with God forever.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16
