Isaac, A Type of Christ

The Bible tells us that the Old Testament is recorded for our learning. We all are somewhat familiar with what we call “Bible Stories” to one degree or another, but how familiar are you with the lessons contained within those oft told stories? God told Abraham, “Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.”

This mountain turned out to be none other than Calvary. A place where God himself would offer His only beloved Son as a sacrifice.  And He told us His plan throughout the Old Testament. One such place is Genesis 22:1-19, Abraham trusted God in verse 8, “… My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering:” And we know He did just that, He offered Himselft as a lamb, the precious Lamb of God, to pay the price for our sin. Listen as Pastor Virgil Farr draws the parallels of how the story of Isaac as a burnt offering foreshadows the passion of Christ.
