Salvation in Genesis
Genesis 22:1-18

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)  And they came to the place
which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and
bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.  (10)  And Abraham stretched
forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.  (11)  And the angel of the LORD called unto
him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.  (12)  And he said,
Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou
fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.  (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.  (14)  And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said
to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.  (15)  And the angel of the LORD called
unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,  (16)  And said, By myself have I sworn, saith
the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only
son:  (17)  That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the
stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall
possess the gate of his enemies;  (18)  And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be
blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.
James 2:14-26

What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith
save him?  (15)  If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,  (16)  And one of you
say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those
things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?  

(17)  Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.  (18)  Yea, a man may say, Thou hast
faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my

(19)  Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.  
(20)  But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?  (21)  Was not Abraham our
father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?  (22)  Seest thou how
faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?  (23)  And the scripture was
fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and
he was called the Friend of God.  (24)  Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not
by faith only.  (25)  Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had
received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?  (26)  For as the body without the
spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
