The Life Of Miser Laughter (33 of 48)
Series: Creation or Evolution?
Dr. Stan Coffey
August 2, 1987
INTRODUCTION: The word Isaac means laughter and refers to the laughter of Abraham and Sarah when God told them that they would bear a child in their old age. Isaac seems to be somewhat overshadowed. He spent most of his life standing in the shadow of his illustrious father Abraham or standing in the shadow of his illustrious son Jacob. Genesis 26 is the only chapter devoted to Isaac alone. It marks the progress he made as a believer in this world. It tells of a man whose spirituality reached its height years before when he went to Mount Moriah and offered himself on the altar in obedience to the command of his father, but who managed with a stumble here and there to keep going for God.
