Genesis 22:1

This website has been moved to:

Genesis 22:1: Now it came to pass after these things that God tested Abraham, and said to him, “Abraham!”
Deuteronomy 8:2: And you shall remember that the Lord your God led you all the way these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you and test you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not.
Judges 2:22: so that through them I may test Israel, whether they will keep the ways of the Lord, to walk in them as their fathers kept them, or not.”

James 1:13: Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone.

Genesis, Deuteronomy, and Judges say that God sometimes tempts people, but James says that God never tempts people.

Genesis, Deuteronomy, and Judges don't say that God tempted people—only that He tested them.

But the meaning of Genesis 22 is that God did indeed tempt Abraham, by making Him choose between obeying God and saving his son.
