Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO GENESIS 22\\

In this chapter we have an account of an order given by God to Abraham
to sacrifice his son, \\#Ge 22:1,2\\; of his readiness to obey the will of
God, he immediately preparing everything for that purpose,
\\#Ge 22:3-10\\, of the order being reversed, and another sacrifice
substituted in its room, which occasioned the giving a new name to the
place where it was done, \\#Ge 22:11-14\\; upon which the promise of
special blessings, of a numerous offspring, and of the seed in whom all
nations should be blessed, is renewed, \\#Ge 22:15-18\\; after this
Abraham returns to Beersheba, where he is informed of the increase of
his brother Nahor's family, \\#Ge 22:19-24\\.
