|Bible Question: Again I ask what did Abraham use to bound Isaac.How did he do it. Do you suppose isaac resisted?|
Bible Answer: martia
Abraham and Isaac gives us a picture of Jesus in future, becoming the sacrifice of God. Isaac is usually pictured as a young boy, but the Bible gives no indication of his age. There may be suggestion he may be fully grown, since the next event recorded is the death of his mother Sarah at 127 years of age, making Isaac 37.
Just as Jesus went to the cross in obedience to God His Father Isaac allowed his father Abraham to place him on the altar.
