Isaac on the Altar
Bible Study Lesson

By faith Abraham, when he was tested,
offered up Isaac, and he who had
received the promises offered up
his only begotten son"

Hebrews 11:17

In this Isaac on the Altar Bible Study Lesson we will see Abraham's faith being tested to the limit and how he passed the challenge by claiming the promise of God. In his later years Abraham lived 2 Corinthians 5:7 before the verse was recorded—"We walk by faith, not by sight."

In this lesson we will examine:

  • How Abraham's faith was tested to the limit.
  • How Abraham responded to the test and how his response placed him in the Bible Faith Hall of Fame.
  • Why Abraham was willing to slay his son Isaac and why he believed God was obligated to resurrect Isaac.
  • Jesus said, "Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad" (John 8:56). We will see how Abraham saw Christ.
  • In this lesson will see how Abraham visualized another Father and Son making an offering on the same mount at a future time.
  • What Abraham meant when he used the word worship. We often see the word on the marquee of a church—The worship service is at... Today, the word worship is often a misnomer in religious circles.
  • What God meant when He told Abraham to possess the gate of his enemies.

NOTE: I recommend listening to the lessons on the tabernacle as I view this series as being one of the most valuable teachings in the Bible. The tabernacle lessons gives us God's formula (not man's) for being justified, sanctified (maturing as a Christian), having an effective prayer life, having an appetite for the Word of God, and for being a positive witness for Christ.

Rev. Dr. Dean, Pastor- If you are looking for a man with a fresh perspective to lead your church to another level, consider inviting Jack to come in and lead a series of teaching sessions. Our church thoroughly enjoyed the time. He is competent in handling the scriptures, and has great insight about Biblical truths that are often neglected or simply not taught by design in so many of our churches today. You will not be disappointed if you embark on such a course.

Connie - I can't put the book Under the Cloud down!

David (a Sunday School teacher for Young Marrieds) - It is a great teaching resource that I know is reliable. There are specific topics that I can easily access for use in my class like "The Rock" and I especially liked the section on "Educating the Flesh."

Mary Anne - Under the Cloud is not just another man's opinion, it is all based on Scripture.

Antoinette (who has already purchased over 30 books) - As I give the book to friends and clients, I say to them "put down all the other books you are reading and read this one! I promise you Under the Cloud will change your life."

Julie - I started reading Under the Cloud yesterday and felt enveloped in love, as well as wonderful memories of being taught amazing and powerful truths through two incredible servants of God. Thank You!

Name withheld by us - I will send my husband and son off to the Middle East in Sept. for their second deployment with a copy of your book. (Likely to Afghanistan).

Karen - I am really enjoying your book. It sure is one that I will go back to. I have already marked it up.

John & Jane - We are both enjoying your book so much. Please bring us 10 more signed copies on Thursday.

Rob - My only criticism of the book is that I eventually ran out of pages.

Sally - Your book is fantastic! I just wish I had read it 20 years ago. It would have answered a lot of my questions.

Wayne - I loved the section on "Rigged Fights."
