A Cloud of Witnesses – Abraham

Each time I read the dramatic story of Abraham and Isaac it becomes a greater mystery. How could a loving God say to his faithful servant, Abraham, “Take your son, Isaac whom you love, and sacrifice him as a burnt offering.” Although human sacrifices were common among many pagans, this had to be an incomprehensible command. God had promised that through Isaac he would bring about his pledge to Abraham to bless all of the families on earth. The writer of Hebrews tells us that Abraham believed that God would raise Isaac from the dead if necessary to carry out the promise. Thus, we have a man of faith who became part of: “A Great Cloud of Witnesses: Abraham”
