Offering of Isaac - Type

In Genesis 22 we read the story of God asking Abraham to offer his son Isaac as a sacrifice. This entire episode is a type of the offering of Jesus as a sacrifice for sin. There are some very important points which need to be considered:

  1. God said, " Take your son, your only son Isaac whom you love..." (Genesis 22:2). It is interesting to note that Abraham actually had another son Ishmael, yet in this case God did not include Ishmael in the equation.
  2. "... go to the land of Moriah, and offer him him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you" (Genesis 22:2). The mountain of Moriah upon which this took place was just outside Jerusalem. There is every indication that this is the place where Jesus died on the cross.
  3. Abraham "figuratively" received Isaac from the dead at the end of this event. Of course Jesus did die and did rise again from the dead.
  4. Abraham called the place Jehovah Jireh (The Lord will Provide) saying "In the Mount of the Lord it shall be provided". This is a prophetic utterance concerning the future death and resurrection of Jesus.
  5. Note: Isaac is not mentioned again in the Scripture by name until his marriage two chapters later. Jesus has been taken up into Heaven until the time of His "marriage".
