Genesis 22:1-13

1 And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am.

2 And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.

3 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.

4 Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.

5 And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you.

6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.

7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?

8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.

9 When they reached the place God had told him about, Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. 

10 Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son. 

11 But the angel of the Lord called out to him from heaven, “Abraham! Abraham!” “Here I am,” he replied.

12 “Do not lay a hand on the boy,” he said. “Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son.”

13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.

GREGORIAN CALENDAR (THE ONE YOU HAVE ON YOUR DESK OR WALL)

Christian Biblical Calendar Converter Abbreviations: BC/AD (Before Christ/Anno Domini) or BCE/CE (Before Common Era/After Common Era)

The Gregorian calendar is sometimes called the Christian calendar or Western calendar. Some calendar scholars reference the Julian calendar, which is similar but lacks modern leap year corrections.


HEBREW CALENDAR (THE ONE IN THE BIBLE)

Abbreviations: AM (Anno Mundi – Latin: “in the year of the world”, Hebrew: “from the creation of the world”)

The Hebrew calendar is sometimes called the Biblical calendar or Jewish calendar, which draws from the Old Testament and calls creation the start of year 1. Converting the calendar is sometimes tricky because the first day of the year 1 is not January 1st.

The above tool allows you to enter either the Gregorian calendar date (like 2015, 2016 or 2017) or the Hebrew calendar date and switch between the two.
