"And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on Isaac his son. And he took in his hand the fire and the knife. So they went both of them together."
"So he delivered him over to them to be crucified. So they took Jesus, and he went out, bearing his own cross, to the place called The Place of a Skull, which in Aramaic is called Golgotha."
John 19:16 & 17
You can probably tell what this is going to be about based on the two verses I quoted above. I'm reading a book called "First Light" by Bodie and Brock Thoene right now, and this is one point that the book brought out that I never caught before. I was always told that God asking Abraham to sacrifice his only son was a picture of God the Father sending his only son Jesus Christ to die for us, but I never noticed this small detail in the story. Just as Jesus had to bear his cross to Calvary...Isaac bore the load of the wood as he made the journey to Mt. Moriah. Such a small little detail...isn't that interesting?
Sorry I don't have more to write about...I just found that fact interesting, and thought I would share it with you all. Hopefully I'll be on again soon with something more to write.
