A2. 從應許到應驗,從應驗到試驗 (創22:2-3)

神說:「你帶著你的兒子,就是你獨生的兒子,你所愛的以撒,往摩利亞地去,在我所要指示你的山上,把他獻為燔祭。」亞伯拉罕清早起來,備上驢,帶著兩個僕人和他兒子以撒,也劈好了燔祭的柴,就起身往神所指示他的地方去了。

Then God said, "Take your son, your only son, Isaac, whom you love, and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will tell you about." Early the next morning Abraham got up and saddled his donkey. He took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac. When he had cut enough wood for the burnt offering, he set out for the place God had told him about.

以撒是亞伯拉罕的「獨生愛子」(22:2),正像耶穌基督是父神的「獨生愛子」(約3:16)(太3:17)一樣。摩利亞山就是後來聖殿的所在地,經上說:「所羅門就在耶路撒冷、耶和華向他父大衛顯現的摩利亞山上,就是耶布斯人阿珥楠的禾場上、大衛所指定的地方預備好了,開工建造耶和華的殿。」(代下3:1)聖殿的所在地就是新約時代的耶路撒冷,耶穌基督就是在耶路撒冷的「各各他」(太27:33)被釘十字架的,正像以撒被帶到摩利亞山上獻為燔祭一樣。

摩利亞山距當時亞伯拉罕的住處別是巴,「騎驢」要有「三天」的行程。(22:3-4)耶穌基督最後一次進耶路撒冷時,也是「騎驢」(太21:7),並且他也是在死後第「三天」復活。(可8:31)在亞伯拉罕獻以撒這件事上,我們大都看重亞伯拉罕對神的信心和順服,其實更重要的是以撒對他父親的信心和順服。亞伯拉罕是敬畏神的,相信以撒也是敬畏神的。凡是敬畏神的人都表現在下列三件事上:完全的降服,絕對的信靠和無疑的順從。
