Jesus vs Isaac - The Sacrifice

jesus isaac

Abraham sacrificed Isaac, and God sacrificed his son Jesus

Christians believe the Father sacrificed his begotten son, Jesus Christ. They point to Abraham's sacrifice of Isaac as evidence that Jesus is God. The table below explores this claim.

Isaac Jesus
When Abraham's son, Isaac grew to be a young boy, God tested Abraham by commanded he offer his son as a burnt sacrifice. Though filled with sadness and grief, Abraham obeyed God's command without hesitation and took Isaac to the mountains.

Suddenly, in the last moment, a ram appeared in place of Isaac. Abraham sacrificed the ram*
Jesus was arrested and sentenced by Pontius Pilate to be scourged, and finally crucified by the Romans. Jesus was stripped of his clothing and beaten before being crucified on the cross. After Jesus' death, one soldier pierced him with a spear to be certain he had died.

On the third day, Jesus rose up and appeared to his disciples*
Sacrifice
And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.
By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son
Isaac is the only son
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him
He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God
In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
Jesus is the only begotten Son (in John's gospel only)
Offered on Mountain, hill
And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.
Isaac was to be sacrificed on a mountain
And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?
No mountain is mentioned in this verse
Accompanied by ass (donkey)
And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him
Abraham took an ass to the sacrifice place
Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass
Jesus came to Jerusalem sitting on an ass
Accompanied by two men
And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him
Abraham took two young men to the sacrifice place
And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left
And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left
Jesus was crucified with two thieves??
Three day journey/tomb
Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.
On the third day, Abraham...
But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.
On the third day, Jesus...
Wood on his back
And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.
Abraham put wood on Isaac's back
And he bearing his cross (wooden) went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:
Jesus carried the cross on his back
Lamb
And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.
Abraham said God will provide a Lamb
The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
Jesus was the lamb?
Offered on wood
And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
The son, Isaac laid on the wooden altar
And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.
It is assumed, Jesus was crucified on wooden cross?
Thorns
And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.
A ram appeared in a thicket of thorns
And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe
Jesus made to wear a crown of thorns
Seed multiplied
That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;
Abraham's seed will be multiplied (increase)
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Believers in Jesus will become sons of God
Parting of ways
So Abraham returned unto his young men, and they rose up and went together to Beersheba; and Abraham dwelt at Beersheba.
Abraham parted from the young men
And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
Jesus parted from the ghost
Wife for son
And Abraham said unto his eldest servant of his house, that ruled over all that he had, Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh: And I will make thee swear by the LORD, the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife unto my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell: But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son Isaac.
Servant was to find Isaac a wife
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
The church was to Jesus, as a wife is to a husband
Bride, a virgin
And the damsel was very fair to look upon, a virgin, neither had any man known her: and she went down to the well, and filled her pitcher, and came up.
damsel was a virgin
For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
A virgin presented to Jesus
