In the Book of Genesis, God commands Abraham to sacrifice his son, Isaac. We read this as a test of Abraham's faith, which it is, yet God reveals a much more important lesson for us. Through this test, God presents His plan for our Savior that points directly towards Holy Week and Resurrection Sunday, providing correlations between Abraham and God, Isaac and Jesus. When we compare Genesis 22 with passages about Jesus, the puzzle begins to take shape.
To begin with, both Isaac and Jesus are described as their father’s only sons, whom they love.
Genesis 22:2 Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, whom you love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.”
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Matthew 3:17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
As I described in Family Feud, Muslims reject this characterization of Isaac as Hagar bore Ishmael to Abraham first. Paul addresses it in Galatians 4:23 "His (Abraham's) son by the slave woman was born according to the flesh, but his son by the free woman was born as the result of a divine promise."
