Bible Study

Led by Rev Suzanne Nockels

Based on Genesis 22:1-4

We reflected on the faith of Abraham as he was instructed to sacrifice his son Isaac.

Do we recognise our  gifts from God and take them for granted?   Here was God asking for his gift of Isaac back.

We considered the hardest thing faced by all the characters in the story, in particular the faith shown by Abraham.

Considering the earlier promise God made to Abraham in Gen 21:12 indicating Isaac would provide Isaac’s offspring

In the New Testament in Hebrews 11:17-19 Paul comments on the ‘sacrifice’ of Isaac and considers the idea of resurrection.

Finally Suzanne compared the qualities of Abraham with that of Jesus Christ with the attitudes shown in Philippians 2:6-10.
