Re:Verse passage – Genesis 22:1-18 (day six)
4 For it is not possible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.
25 For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past,26 for he was looking ahead and including them in what he would do in this present time. God did this to demonstrate his righteousness, for he himself is fair and just, and he makes sinners right in his sight when they believe in Jesus.
The ram God provided on Mount Moriah did not take away Abraham’s sin, but it was a foreshadowing of the Lamb of God who would.
Jesus was God’s provision for Abraham and for us.
