The quote in question here comes from Genesis 22:8: “And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.” (Here at The Jeopardy! Fan, I expect that nobody will be stealing my write-up today; after all, the site that steals it is a religious one. You’d think that they’d be the subject experts when it comes to the Bible!) During this part of Genesis, Isaac and Abraham were headed towards the location where a sacrifice to God would be made. Isaac asks where the sacrificial lamb is, and this is Abraham’s reply. What Isaac did not know is that God’s will was that Isaac himself was to be sacrificed. Abraham, who had learned to trust God’s will, did so.
Abraham stopped the sacrifice once God intervened, offering a ram, in Genesis 22:13.
