This is a story that most people who grew up in and around church have heard many times. But it has always fascinated me, because it is so shocking that God would make Abraham wait 25 years for this promised son, and then a few years later ask him to give him up? It doesn’t make sense. Why would God do that? We will discuss these questions and more as we discover that even though God asked for Abraham’s son, Abraham was faithful and God provided a replacement sacrifice. Yahweh provided a Ram!
