Two stories of a father and son.
In the first, a son is taken up a mountain on a three day journey to be offered as a holocaust, carrying the wood needed for the sacrifice. The son, the heir of the father’s dependants, is willing. The father must have had such emotions about what he was going to do, but he trusted his Heavenly Father. So he, at the command of God, took his son to the brink of death before he was stopped by the hands of his Heavenly Father. This father proved his faith. But, being a created being, his son could not possibly be the ultimate sacrifice acceptable to God.
Another Father sent his Son up a mountain to be offered as a holocaust, carrying the wood needed for the sacrifice. The Son was willing. He suffered all the pain and agony caused by the sin of the entire history of the human race. The Father allowed his only Son to die. After a three day journey to the center of the earth, He IS Risen. He IS True God and True Man. He conquered death once and for all. Through this act, we have hope and are children of life.
Then God said:
“Take your son Isaac, your only one, whom you love,
and go to the land of Moriah.
There you shall offer him up as a holocaust
on a height that I will point out to you.”

Hillsong – You Saw Me
In the Gospel, Jesus takes three disciples up a mountain. Elijah and Moses joined Jesus. The Father announces in great splendor who his Son truly is. “This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.”
