November 10, 2018 Morning Verse Of The Day

22:8 Isaac comes near to being sacrificed, but God provides a substitute. Ultimately God will sacrifice his only Son, who dies in our place (Gal. 3:13, 16). The ram prefigures the sacrifice of Christ.[1]


22:8 God will provide the lamb This comment and the earlier plural (“we will return”) provides insight into Abraham’s faith. Compare Heb 11:19.[2]


22:8 provide … the lamb. A type of Jesus Christ (John 1:29, 36).[3]
