List of 25 ways Isaac was a type of Christ: Genesis 22

"Abraham received him back as a type." Hebrews 11:17-19; Acts 20:28; Rev 5:9

1. The substitutionary sacrifice of a ram in place of Issac was a type of the substitutionary sacrifice of Christ in place of us.

2. Child sacrifice was widely practiced at the time of Abraham in all cultures and religions of the world. When God ordered Abraham to sacrifice his own son, Abraham was not surprised and willingly complied, concluding it was normal. However, Abraham also reasoned that God would raise Isaac from the dead after he killed him, to fulfill the promise of many descendants through Isaac.

3. Abraham is a type of God the Father because the name Abram means "exalted father" in Hebrew.

4. The universal opinion of all early Christians was that Isaac was as a type of Christ's resurrection, not of believers. Jesus specifically confirms he is the intended object of the type in John 8:56.

5. Forward type: Isaac to Christ Heb 11:19.

6. Reverse type of 3 days: Christ back to Isaac: Lk 24:46 + Gen 22:4; Jn 8:56
