Drawing Bible Verses- Genesis 22- God commands Homer to sacrifice Bart

Homer sacrifices Bart --Genesis 22Genesis 22:2,6-10 Then God said to Homer, “Take your only son, whom you love—Bart—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you…

Homer took wood for the burnt offering and placed it on his son Isaac, and he himself carried the fire and the knife. As the two of them went on together. Bart spoke up and said to his father Homer, “Father?”

“Yes, my son?” Homer replied.

“The fire and wood are here,” Bart said, “but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?”

Homer answered, “God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.” And the two of them went on together.

When they reached the place God had told him about, Homer built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He bound Bart and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son….

SPOILER ALERT- God did stop Homer right before he stuck the knife in Bart and told him he was just kidding and wanted to see how far Homer would go. He then  gave him a lamb that was caught in a thicket.  They killed it together but then Homer cut off Bart’s foreskin to show God he still wanted to hurt his son in His name.  The end!
