The focus of this Bible story, Abraham offering Isaac, his only son, is told reverently and with deep feeling. Woven throughout is the theme that Abraham knew by implication and believed that the animal sacrifices he offered pointed to the perfect sacrifice of the Son of God. Psalm quotations from the Book of Praise illustrate this theme. The tension of Abraham's struggle to obey is made very clear.

This Bible story is told from the redemptive-historical viewpoint redemption stands central.
