Jeremiah Smith - February 1, 2023


This study takes a closer look at a very familiar story--"the Akedah" or "the binding" of Isaac. Does God encourage child sacrifice? How could a loving God put a father through something like this? Is there something else going on that is much deeper? Is this story for Abraham, Isaac, or someone else? We discuss these questions and much more in this lesson.

Scripture References: Genesis 22:1-24

From Topical Study: "Finding Jesus in the Old Testament"

Wasn’t Jesus of Nazareth born in Bethlehem? Why was Abraham told to sacrifice his only son? How long has Jesus existed? What did the brazen serpent in the wilderness mean? Does the Old Testament talk about Jesus?

This study delves into the ancient books of the Hebrew Scriptures to try and answer these questions. Find out if the Jesus Christ of the New Testament is anywhere to be found in them and gain a better understanding of Scripture in order to ultimately achieve a closer relationship with Him.
