About Isaac

Wikipedia: * Isaac & יצחק.

2nd Patriarch of the Jewish Nation. The 9th Prophet of Islam (see also Isaac in Islam).

  1. Note: laughter. (1) Israel, or the kingdom of the ten tribes (Amos 7:9, 16). (2.) The only son of Abraham by Sarah. He was the longest lived of the three patriarchs (Gen. 21:1-3). He was circumcised when eight days old (4-7); and when he was probably two years old a great feast was held in connection with his being weaned.

The next memorable event in his life is that connected with the command of God given to Abraham to offer him up as a sacrifice on a mountain in the land of Moriah (Gen. 22). According to Talmudic sources, this happened when he was 37.

When he was 40 years old Rebekah was chosen for his wife (Gen. 24). After the death and burial of his father he took up his residence at Beer-lahai-roi (25:7-11), where his two sons, Esau and Jacob, were born (21-26), the former of whom seems to have been his favourite son (27,28). In consequence of a famine (Gen. 26:1) Isaac went to Gerar, where he practiced deception as to his relation to Rebekah, imitating the conduct of his father in Egypt (12:12-20) and in Gerar (20:2). The Philistine king rebuked him for his prevarication. After sojourning for some time in the land of the Philistines, he returned to Beer-Sheba, where God gave him fresh assurance of covenant blessing, and where Abimelech entered into a covenant of peace with him. The next chief event in his life was the blessing of his sons (Gen. 27:1).

He died at Mamre, "being old and full of days" (35:27-29), 180 years old, and was buried in the cave of Machpelah, where his parents were buried earlier.

In the New Testament reference is made to his having been "offered up" by his father (Heb. 11:17; James 2:21), and to his blessing his sons (Heb. 11:20). As the child of promise, he is contrasted with Ishmael (Rom. 9:7, 10; Gal. 4:28; Heb. 11:18). Isaac is "at once a counterpart of his father in simple devoutness and purity of life, and a contrast in his passive weakness of character, which in part, at least, may have sprung from his relations to his mother and wife. After the expulsion of Ishmael and Hagar, Isaac had no competitor, and grew up in the shade of Sarah's tent, molded into feminine softness by habitual submission to her strong, loving will." His life was so quiet and uneventful that it was spent "within the circle of a few miles; so guileless that he let Jacob overreach him rather than disbelieve his assurance; so tender that his mother's death was the poignant sorrow of years; so patient and gentle that peace with his neighbors was dearer than even such a coveted possession as a well of living water dug by his own men; so grandly obedient that he put his life at his father's disposal; so firm in his reliance on God that his greatest concern through life was to honor the divine promise given to his race.", Geikie's Hours, etc.

Su nombre significa “reírse”. Porque en dos ocasiones en que Dios se llegó a Abraham para decirle que lo iba a bendecir con otro hijo, se rieron tanto él como Sara. (Gén. 17:17 y 18:10-13). . . . Isaac tenía 42 años cuando se casó con Rebeca, la aramea que vivía en Padan-aram. Rebeca era esteril pero Isaac rogó al Señor por ella; el Señor oyó su oración y Rebeca tuvo mellizos, uno pelirojo al cual llamaron Esaú y su hermano, al que llamaron Jacob. Isaac tenía 60 años cuando Rebeca dió a luz.. . . Después de algún tiempo hubo una gran escasez de alimentos en toda la región, y pensó Isaac en ir a Egipto. Pero el Señor se le apareció y le impidió que fuera, reafirmándole la promesa que había hecho a su padre Abraham. Prometiéndole que sus descendientes serían tan numerosos como las estrellas del cielo y prometiéndole más tierras y más bendiciones. (Gén. 26:1-5). . . Isaac habitó en Gerar, donde vivía Abimelec, rey de los filisteos. Pero, con el tiempo, se enriqueció tanto que Abimelec lo echó de aquella región y fue a acampar en el valle de Gerar en donde volvió a abrir los pozos de agua que los filisteos habían tapado y moró allí. De allí Isaac se fue a Beerseba en donde el Señor se le apareció para hacerle de nuevo la promesa! (Gén. 26:12-25). . . La fecha aproximada de su nacimiento y de su muerte es c. 1904-1724 a. de J.C..
