Day 5: Isaac and the Lamb

"Behold the Lamb of God which takes away the sin of the world." John 1:29

This has actually been the hardest one to talk about with a 2 year old. A lot of modifying had to be done with this one because how do you explain that God told Abraham to kill his own son. With the advice of some friends we were able to change it up and talk to Eli about how God wanted Abraham to give Him a gift. And at the very last minute God gave Abraham the gift of the sheep instead because of his obedience. This is a constant lesson for Eli these days as we encourage Eli to listen and obey, which is exactly what Abraham did.
