Luke 3:34

Isaac
Meaning: laughter.
This was the name of a biblical man and a place (named after him). His name appears 128 times in Scripture.
Isaac was 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 ). (See Abraham .)
When he was forty years of age 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 favorite son (27,28 ).
Because of a famine (Gen. 26:1 , Isaac went to Gerar , where he lied about 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 Beersheba , 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 .
In the New Testament , reference is made to his having been "offered up" by his father (Hebrews 11:17 ; James 2:21 ), and to his blessing his sons (Hebrews 11:20 ). As the child of promise, he is contrasted with Ishmael (Rom. 9:7,10 ; Gal. 4:28 ; Hebrews 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, moulded 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.)

Isaac
(Hebrew : , Modern </wiki/Hebrew_language> Yitzchaq Tiberian Yi, "he will laugh"; Yiddish : , Yitzchok; Greek : Latin : Isaac; Arabic : or ; pronounced /'a?zek/ ) as described in the Hebrew Bible , was the only son Abraham had with his wife Sarah , and was the father of Jacob and Esau . Isaac is regarded as one of the three patriarchs of the Jewish people . According to the Book of Genesis , Abraham was 100 years old when Isaac was born, and Sarah was beyond childbearing years.
Isaac was the only Biblical patriarch whose name was not changed, and the only one who did not leave Canaan . Compared to those of Abraham and Jacob, Isaac's story relates fewer incidents of his life. He died when he was 180 years old, making him the longest-lived patriarch.
The New Testament contains several references to Isaac. The early Christian church viewed Abraham's willingness to follow God's command to sacrifice Isaac as an example of faith and obedience. Muslims honor Ishaq (Isaac) as a prophet of Islam , and a few of the children of Isaac are mentioned in the Qur'an , which describes Isaac as the father of the Israelites and a righteous servant of God . The Qur'an states that Isaac and his progeny are blessed as long as they uphold their covenant with God, a view that ceased to find support among Muslim scholars in later centuries.
Some academic scholars have described Isaac as "a legendary figure", while others view him as "a figure representing tribal history, though as a historical individual" or as "a seminomadic leader".

Jewish traditions

In rabbinical tradition the age of Isaac at the time of binding is taken to be 37 which contrasts with common portrayals of Isaac as a child.[12] The rabbis also thought that the reason for the death of Sarah was the news of the intended sacrifice of Isaac. The sacrifice of Isaac was cited in appeals for the mercy of God in the later Jewish traditions. The post-Biblical Jewish interpretations often elaborate the role of Isaac beyond the Biblical description and largely focus on Abraham's intended sacrifice of Isaac, called the aqedah ("binding"). According to a version of these interpretations, Isaac died in the sacrifice and was revived. According to many accounts of Aggadah , unlike the Bible, it is Satan who is testing Isaac and not God. Isaac's willingness to follow God's command at the cost of his death has been a model for many Jews who preferred martyrdom to violation of the Jewish law .
According to the Jewish tradition Isaac instituted the afternoon prayer. This tradition is based on Genesis 24:63 ("Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide").
Isaac was the only patriarch who stayed in Canaan during his whole life and though once he tried to leave, God told him not to do so (Genesis 26:2 ). Rabbinic tradition gave the explanation that Isaac was almost sacrificed and anything dedicated as a sacrifice may not leave the Land of Israel . Isaac was the oldest of the Biblical patriarchs at the time of his death, and the only patriarch whose name was not changed.
Rabbinic literature also linked Isaac's blindness in old age, as stated in the Bible, to the sacrificial binding: Isaac's eyes went blind because the tears of angels present at the time of his sacrifice fell on Isaac's eyes.
