The Faith of Abraham Was the Faith of Jesus.

Abraham received the promise of an heir and an inheritance, as recorded in Gen. 15:1-5; and verse 6 says, "He believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness.” In James 2:21-23 we are informed that the scripture quoted above had its fulfilment when Abraham offered up his son Isaac, about forty years after the events had occurred in connection with which the statement was made.
