Labels: , , , .

Refer to my earlier post Biblical Imaginations on a definition of biblical imagination.

Gen 22:6-7
"And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together. And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?"
God's judgment - Fire
God's wrath - Knife
Man's sins - Wood
Christ's love - Cords that bound Isaac

Gen 48:14 "And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon Ephraim’s head, who was the younger, and his left hand upon Manasseh’s head, guiding his hands wittingly; for Manasseh was the firstborn"
The Cross of Christ alluded in the crossing of Israel's left and right hands?
