Abraham said, God himself will provide the lamb for a burnt offering, my son. So the two of them walked on together. Genesis 22:8 (NRSV).
God decided to test Abraham, so he told him to take his only son Isaac and offer him as a burnt offering at a place God would show him. So, Abraham took Isaac and two young men with him the next morning to follow Gods command. When Abraham found the place he was to sacrifice Isaac, he took his son and went on the mountain with him. He built an alter and bound his son on it. He then raised the knife to kill him, but an angel of the Lord called to him and told him to not lay a hand on his son. Abraham looked up and saw a ram caught in the bushes and sacrificed it in the place of Isaac. The angel called again, this time telling Abraham of the blessing God has given him.
