Abraham Saw My Day And Rejoiced In It
Did you know that God spoke in the Old Testament, with models or parables, in the same way that Y'shua, Jesus, did in the New Testament? Everyone knows the story of Abraham and his attempt at the sacrifice of Isaac. If you step back and look at a general synopsis of the story, in the same way you do with parables, you find that God required a man to sacrifice another man, of his own lineage, for the remission of sins. Because the sacrificed of Isaac would be unacceptable, God substituted a ram, a scapegoat, in his place. This is the exact same thing that occurred at the cross. Amazingly, this is what Y'shua, Jesus meant, when he said, "Abraham saw my day and rejoiced in it."
