It’s Friday, What Isaac did in type Christ now does in reality

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee Because by Thy holy cross Thou hast redeemed the world.

And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: John 19:17

They compel Jesus to bear the cross, regarding it as unholy, and therefore avoiding the touch of it themselves. And He bearing His cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in Hebrew Golgotha, where they crucified Him. The same was done in type by Isaac, who carried the wood (Gen 22:6). But then the matter only proceeded as far as his father’s good pleasure ordered, but now it was fully accomplished, for the reality had appeared. – St. John Chrysostom
