Once Isaac was slightly older, God commanded Abraham to take Isaac to a mountain and to sacrifice him at the top. This was an ultimate test that God gave to Abraham. Being God's servant, Abraham went as he was told with Isaac to the top of a mountain in order to sacrifice his son. Abraham prepared to cut Isaac's throat, but just in the nick of time God's angels stopped him. Seeing that there was a ram caught in some bushes, Abraham sacrificed that to God instead.

Let come back to Abraham. One of the most well known Old Testament stories is the test of Abraham. God said that he wanted him to take his son, Isaac, to take him to the region of Moriah and to sucrifice as a burnt offering on the one of the mountains he would point him out. Next morning Abraham saddled donkey and went to the place God told him about. They walked for three days then when Abraham saw the place of their destination he left his servants and then went only with Isaac. (by the way many biblical scholars think that God chose the place of the sucrifice that was in the three days journey far from their place because for this big period of time Abraham could change his mind many times) He took the wood for the burnt offering and placed it on Issac and they went to the mountain.

While they were walking Isaac asked his father about the lamb for the offering, but Abraham replied that God would provide it. He made an altar up there, then bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar and right in that moment when Abraham was about to pierce him the voice from the sky stopped him. Thus Abraham proved his faith to God so God told that he would surely bless him and make his son into a get nation. Chapter 22 God tells Abraham to take his son Isaac to the burnt offering to offer his son up to God. Isaac asks Abraham where is the lamb for the offering, he is very smart and worried. Abraham says that the Lord will provide it.

Abraham builds an altar and places his son upon it; he is about to kill his own son when an angel calls out to him. The Angel asks him if he is about to kill his only son who was given to him by the Lord as an offering. Then Abraham panics and offers a ram instead. The Angel of the Lord came to him a second time and offered him a blessing for what he did. The verses nineteen through twenty-four who were they talking about was it Abraham's wife?
