This passage reminds us that it is actually only a relationship with Jesus that satisfies our spiritual hunger. Jesus promises to raise you up at the last day and that you will live forever. You can have absolute assurance that your relationship with Jesus will outlast death. There is both a present and a future dimension to this eternal life. Jesus says it can be received immediately v.

And, it appears, that is what he did vv. It is important to note that God never asked him to make this vow.
Nor did he ask him to carry out the sacrifice. Indeed, it went against all the teaching of the Old Testament, which forbade child sacrifice. It seems to be his own pride that drives him to put his reputation above the life of his daughter.
