“God will provide a sheep for the burnt offering, my son,” Abraham answered. And they both walked on together. Genesis 22:8 (NLT)
We’ve come a long way in every field of human endeavor since Abraham said that to Isaac his son. Actually, it was spoken about 3,897 years ago! So it’s been around awhile. The full context for my opening verse is rich and space here does not allow for all that richness to be investigated. It’s a history of a guy God called to faith, renamed him from Abram meaning “father is exalted” to Abraham meaning “father of a multitude”, led him on a faith journey that he never personally saw fulfilled.
