But now, out of breath on the mountaintop, his eyes are open to the Lord, the God of hesed, who as Ezra says is not like the other gods. He will not demand Isaac’s blood. Unlike any other god he himself will provide the sacrifice, as he will provide manna, living water, and shoes that never wear out. Again and again, just when a multitude of characters in the Bible realize their own inadequacy, their own sin, just when they realize they have a right to expect nothing, they receive not simply a second chance but everything from God. A new age of trusting the Lord is born.
