Genesis 22:9-10 (NLT2) – When they arrived at the place where God had told him to go,
Abraham built an altar and arranged the wood on it. Then he tied his son, Isaac, and laid

as a sacrifice.

Luke 18:28-30 (ESV) – And Peter said, “See, we have left our homes and followed you.”

Genesis 22:11-14 (NLT2) – At that moment the angel of the LORD called to him from
heaven, “Abraham! Abraham!” “Yes,” Abraham replied. “Here I am!” 12 “Don’t lay a hand
on the boy!” the angel said. “Do not hurt him in any way, for now I know that you truly fear
God. You have not withheld from me even your son, your only son.” 13 Then Abraham
looked up and saw a ram caught by its horns in a thicket. So he took the ram and
sacrificed it as a burnt offering in place of his son. 14 Abraham named the place Yahweh-
Yireh (which means “the LORD will provide”). To this day, people still use that name as a
proverb: “On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided.”
