LESSON FOR MARCH 16.
THE TEST OF ABRAHAM'S FAITH.
LESSON TEXT-Gen. 22:1-13.
GOLDEN TEXT-"I desire goodness
and not sacriflce; and the knowledge of
God more than burnt offerings."-How.
The birth of Isaac ("laughter")
17:19, and the setting aside of the son
of the bond woman, a story so rich
with suggestiveness, forms the con
nection between the lesson of last
week and the one of this week.
I. Sacrifice Required. "God did
prove Abraham" (R. V.) vv. 1-2. Abra
ham's ready response, "Behold me,
here am I," gives evidence of his life
long habit of obedience. He was ready
for sacrifice or service. His habit of
taking God at his word prepared him
for this final act of testing, and per
fecting, of his faith. The revised ver
sion "prove" is a better rendering than
the authorized version "tempt." God
does not tempt, i. e., solicit men to
evil Jas. 1:13. but he does "prove"
men; see Ex. 20:20 and I Peter 1:12.
Abraham had been tried before but
what father is there who will not say
this was the supreme test, for he is
called upon to give up his, "only son,
whom thou cherishest."
Superficial critics have taken occa
sion to make light of a God who would
make such a demand upon an earthly
father. We need to remember that
Abraham had doubtless witnessed hu
man sacrifices in Chaldea and that
having seen God's faithfulness and his
past deliverances, he had enough
faith to believe that God could in his
own Providence deliver Isaac. Fur
ther, attention has been called to the
exact language of the text, viz., God's
demand was that Abraham "offer" (not
"kill") Isaac as a sacrifice. The liter
al language is "make him go up" up
on the altar, doubtless in symbol. We
read elsewhere, Heb. 11:17 that "Abra
ham offered up Isaac," but we know
he did not kill Isaac. Those who
stumble at that part of the story miss
the great lesson God intended to teach
in the record of this incident. How
ever, Abraham was ready to do (v. 10)
what God himself did actually do when
he gave his "only son," John 3:16,
Rom. 8:32. Isaac was the child of the
promise, hence the only son (cf. Gen.
21:12). This makes the text more se
vere for Ishmael had been sent off,
21:14. God today is calling upon fath
ers to sacrifice their sons, and fathers
are sacriflcing though not always unto
God. We must put our children upon
the altar. Matt. 10:37.
II. Sacrifice Granted.. "Abraham
rose up early," vv. 3.10. The writer
of Genesis has left us to fill in the
emotions and the mental agony that
must have surged through Abraham's
heart, yet we again see a wonderful
illustration of prompt obedience, ef.
Attention has been called to Isaac
as a type of Christ (cf. John 10:17-18).
(1) His name, given before birth; (2)
His birth, supernatural, predicted; (3)
His offering, a, by his father; b, volun
tary; c, risen from the dead; (4) His
marriage; a, bride selected by his fath
er; b, servant calls the bride; c. meet
ing of bride and bridegroom. In this
connection we behold Isaac bearing
the wood (v. 6) a reminder of Christ
bearing his cross, John 19:17. The
test to Abraham's faith was full even
to the point that "he took the knife to
slay his son," when God intervened.
The repetition. "Abraham, A braham,"
suggests the urgency of God to save
and the devotion of Abrahapi in that
he was not easily turned aside nor
looking for a way of escaping a dis
agreeable duty. Abraham was sus
tained to the end (Rom. 4:20, 21 R. V.)
snd out of it all he is abundantly re
warded, vv. 15-18 and 26:4-5.
III. Sacrifice Provided." "A lamb
caught In the thicket," vv. 1 1-15. Again
God spoke to Abraham through "an
angel," an old Hebraic way of saying
that God made himself known. It has
been suggested that at this point- the
Hebrew broke away from human sacri
ices. There is nothing in this story
to sustain any claim that God justifies
human sacrifices, but the exact con
trary. for God gave Isaac back to
Abraham (Heb. 1:19 R. V.) and that
he is constantly doing to those who
surrender their all and their best to
him, Mark 10:29-30; Prov. 11:24-25.
Abraham did not leave the mountain
until he had offered a sacrifice and
who can question but that his heart
was filled with great joy and thanks
giving unto God, 2 Cor. 9:15. Without
the shedding of blood we cannot ap
Abraham Is a type of true piety
and is constantly held up by New Tes
tament writers as the Ideal of religion,
the reason is that religion never
changes. It is the attitude of the soul
to God. Read Horace Bushnell's ex
perience as related In "Dissolving of
Doubts." Some men seem to pass
through life without much testing, the
question is suggested, are they worth
testing. are they of sufficient value.
"Trials are God's vote of confidence."
This is also a great illustration of
substitutionlary snrif'e. ask !saac I
