Abraham is the archetype of the man of faith. He received the supreme test of faith when God told him to sacrifice his son Isaac. Abraham had waited many years for his wife Sarah to bear Isaac, who was to be the fulfillment of the LORD’s promise to multiply Abraham’s seed as the “stars of the heaven.” Nevertheless, Abraham obeyed, and as he raised his knife to kill his son, the angel of the LORD told him to stop, and Abraham offered a ram in his place.
