 We can see at a glance that chapter 22 introduces a series of truths altogether new. The distinctive mark already mentioned, "After these things," {Gen. 15:1; 22:1; 22:20} makes a decided break, a fresh start in thought; and you will observe how completely this is the fact, because there it is not only an altogether new train of communications from God, but also of a different character. (Abraham: Genesis 18 by W. Kelly)
 However, it is well to see that God confers a signal honor upon us when He thus tests our hearts. We never read that “the Lord did tempt Lot.” No; Sodom tempted Lot. (Genesis 22 by C.H. Mackintosh)
