Abraham lived with his wife Sarah, in the land of Haran. they had no children, but they had many sheep.
One day god said to Abraham, “Look up at the stars in the sky,” God said. “You will have a son."Abraham thought that he and Sarah were to old.
Time went by and Sarah and Abraham had a baby boy named Isaac.
Years later Abraham was called by god. Abraham! I want you to pack up all your things and leave your home. Take your son, Isaac to a place to sacrifice him as an offering to prove your loyalty. Abraham kept it as a secret from Isaac till the last moment.
"We have to go and sacrifice a lamb."Abraham said to the servants and Isaac.
Before Abraham got ready to prepare the wood he said to the servants.
"Wait here with the donkey while I and the boy go over there. I will worship God and then I will come back to you.”
"The wood is here,” Isaac said, “but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?”
Soon after the angel called out Abraham. He looked up and he saw a ram and he has it by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son. THE END.
"God wants me to sacrifice you, son." explained Abraham.
