Jesus describes how Abraham rejoiced to see his day; he saw it and was glad. How did Abraham see the day of Jesus 1,800 years before he was born? By faith, Abraham saw the Lamb of God offered as a substitutionary sacrifice for the elect on Mount Moriah as he was called to offer his only begotten son, Isaac. We see the providence of God in providing a ram to save Isaac, just as the Lamb of God was offered on the very same Mount Moriah to take away the sins of God’s children.
