If you’re just joining us, you need to read yesterday’s post to make sense of what’s going on here in Hebrews 11.
We’ve so far almost made it through to the end of Abraham’s story of faith. But there’s one last incident to record:
11:17-19 By faith Abraham, when God tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice. He who had embraced the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son, even though God had said to him, “It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.” Abraham reasoned that God could even raise the dead, and so in a manner of speaking he did receive Isaac back from death.
