Posted on February 26, 2024 by Published by

Kathleen discussed the significance of the Abraham and Isaac story from the Bible, emphasizing its historical context, symbolic elements, and its repudiation of child sacrifice. She highlighted the story’s foreshadowing of Jesus’ sacrifice, including the use of a ram as a substitute sacrifice and the phrase “on the third day”. Kathleen also pointed out that the location where Isaac was spared, Jira plus Salem, could be the same place where Jesus was later crucified. She concluded by inviting interested parties to join their Bible study program.

Readings discussed: Exodus 17:3-7; Romans 5:1-10; John 4:5-42
