And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.
Both Abraham and Isaac demonstrate incredible obedience. Abraham to do as the Lord commanded despite knowing that the Lord was not about human sacrifice and this was his son and heir. And Isaac to allow it to happen and to trust his father that it had been commanded. He was young and his father was well over a hundred. Isaac could have stopped his father if he was not also obedient to the Lord.
