Gen. 22:1 And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt ([nacah: try, prove]; use to show) Abraham, and said
unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here... I am... (a parody of the name of God, himself, YHVH, by analogy, placing
Abraham in the position of God).
Gen. 22:2 And he said, Take now thy son, (as I shall take my own), thine only son, (as shall I take my only begotten
son), Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah, (a hill, like Golgotha, the place of the Skull, in Palestinia;
[John 19:17]); and offer him [John 19:7] there, (symbolically transferring guilt and sin to him; [Luke 24:47]), for a burnt
offering, (Olah, Hebrew meaning: a sin offering transferred from the guilty to the sacrifice), upon one of the mountains which
I will tell thee of.
Gen. 22:3 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, (Simon: [Matt 27:32]) and took two ([Matt 27:38])
of his young men, (as witnesses) with him, and Isaac his son, and (split up), clave the wood, (as if the pieces of the cross
of Isaac's crucifixion: [John 19:18]), for the burnt offering, (Olah, Hebrew meaning: the ritual for the transferal of sin;
[Luke 24:47]), and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.
Gen. 22:4 Then, (in analogy to the three years of the ministry of Jesus to come, and again, in his resurrection), on
the third "day," (Hebrew: yom; or, three durations of time: [Luke 24:46; Rev. 11:9]), Abraham lifted up his eyes,
and saw the place afar off, (in the future).
Gen. 22:5 And Abraham said unto his young men ([Matt 27:38]), Abide ye here with the ass, (Simon: [Matt 27:32]); and
I, (as if the Lord), and the lad (as if the Christ) will go yonder (to the hill) and worship (in obeisance, God's will be
done), and come again to you, (perhaps alone).
Gen. 22:6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering (Olah, Hebrew meaning: the ritual for the transferral of sin
and guilt; [Luke 24:47]), and laid it upon Isaac (John 19:17) his son (not as fuel which would normally have been placed under
Isaac); and he took the fire (of the altar of holocaust to come: [Rev. 11:9]) in his hand, and a knife (that he might pierce
him); and they went both of them, (Father and dutiful son), together.
Gen. 22:7 And Isaac spake (Mark 15:34) unto Abraham his father, and said, My father, (why have you forsaken the lamb:
[Matt 27:46]): and he said, Here "am I," (Exodus 3:14), my son [John 19:7]. And he, (Isaac), said, Behold the fire
[Matthew 3:11] and the wood [John 23:33]: but where is the lamb (of God; [John 1:29, 36]) for a Burnt Offering, (Olah, Hebrew
meaning: for the transference of sin from the sinner to the sacrificed; [Luke 24:47])?
Gen. 22:8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb (in days to come; [John 1:29, 36]) for a burnt offering
(Olah, Hebrew meaning: that sin might be transferred from my seed to the sacrifice): so they went both of them together, (father
and son; [Luke 23:46]).
Gen. 22:9 And they came to the place [Matt 27:33] which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid,
(as if a cross), the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
Gen. 22:10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.
Gen. 22:11 And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, "Abraham, Abraham;" [Psalm 22:1):
and he said, Here am I, (a parody of the name of God, himself, YHVH?).
Gen. 22:12 And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou
fearest (the heavenly and holy attributes of this thing of) God: [John 10:17], (the atonement of sin by sacrifice of an only
begotten son), seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.
Gen. 22:13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a "ram;" ([ayil: the political
chiefs]; symbolic of the European Jewish rabbi), caught in a thicket (of the Nazi persecution to come: [Rev. 11:9]), by his
horns, (or, his power: [symbolic Dictionary]): and Abraham, (in analogy to God), went and took, (in absence of a lamb), the
"ram," (the Jewish leadership in Europe of the 20th century to come: [Rev. 11:9, 10]), and offered him, (as a Burnt
Offering, the sin offering, the Jewish people themselves:[Exodus 4:22]), up (in holocaust) for a burnt offering (in the crematoriums
to come, the Burnt Offering), in the stead of (isaac), his son, (in analogy, as was Christ offered for their salvation).
Gen. 22:14 And Abraham called the name (in the Hebrew, "God will teach us") of that place Jehovah-jireh, (Mt
Moriah): as it is said to this day, (2k6), In the mount, (Golgotha), of the LORD it shall be seen.
Gen. 22:15 And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,
Gen. 22:16 And (God) said, "By myself have I sworn (your salvation by blood of my own son)," saith the LORD,
for because thou hast done this thing, (offer even the blood of your son, should I require it from you: [Johh 10:17]), and
hast not withheld thy son, thine only (Begotten) son:
Gen. 22:17 That in blessing (far into the future), I will bless thee, and in multiplying (the Israelites), 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 (the religious)
gate (of Holy Scripture, the Old Testament) of his (once pagan, Gentile) enemies (converted to me);
Gen. 22:18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed (in Christian conversion); because thou hast
obeyed my voice.
Gen. 22:19 So Abraham returned, (as he had said, "come again to you"), unto his young men, (Isaac, "resurrected"
from the Burnt Offering for remission ofthe sin of others) and they rose up and went together to Beer-sheba, ([Hebrew; the
wellof the oath]); and Abraham dwelt at Beer-sheba.
Gen. 22:20 And it came to pass after these things, that it was told Abraham, (symbolically representing God, returned
with his son Isaac, alive), saying, Behold, Milcah, she hath also born (twelve) children unto thy brother Nahor, (in anaology,
as if these were the tribes of Israel chosen by Abraham, symbolically, "God," in this metaphor of prophecy: [Gen.
