Abraham's promised son Isaac has been born to him and Sarah, but now God puts Abraham's faith to the test, and requires the life of Isaac. This is a difficult story to read and make sense of, but we will examine it in light of three key features. Firstly, that God is not like the other pagan God's who did require child sacrifice; secondly, God once again wants Abraham to trust him, and indeed he does; and lastly this story presents the concept of the sacrificial substitute and ultimately resurrection.
