“As a jeweler holds a gemstone in the light and turns it slowly, examining each priceless, shining facet, Scott LaPierre holds high this picture of heaven’s love, and he examines its every detail.”–Cary Green: Speaker, Missionary, Church Planter, and Senior Pastor
Have you ever wondered why God asked Abraham to sacrifice his son in Genesis 22?
The Angel stopped Abraham showing God did not intend for him to kill Isaac, but what did God desire? Prophecies in the Old Testament look forward to Jesus, but He is also revealed through types and shadows. Genesis 22 one of the greatest examples. God wanted to test the patriarch and prophet, Abraham, but readers will discover the account also reveals:
Genesis 22 is not primarily about Abraham and Isaac. God and Jesus are the true and greater Father and Son shining forth in the account. Abraham did not spare his son but was willing to deliver him up for God. Likewise, God “did not spare His Son, but delivered Him up for us all” (Romans 8:32).
Learn the remarkable parallels between God and Abraham, and Jesus and Isaac. With thought-provoking questions at the end of each chapter, the book is perfect for personal use or group Bible studies.
