I noticed something I hadn't before when reading this parshah to Ian. Abraham tells the servants specifically that he and Isaac will come back down the mountain. Now, he could be lying certainly. But he was so specific about it that it made me wonder if he knew that G-d would stop him - if that was the test - having faith that G-d would stop him before he harmed Isaac. And if so it puts the "G-d will provide the lamb" comment in new light.
That is SUCH a good point, and not something I've ever noticed before!

Really interesting point. Also makes one wonder what they thought when he came down alone. Of course the easiest answer to all these incongruous points is that there were different versions and they were put together, but it's interesting to try to come up with more satisfying explanations.
