What is the name of the place today where Abraham offered Isaac as sacrifice?

Abraham offered Isaac on Mount Moriah, which became later known as the Temple Mount, which is now occupied by the Mosque of Omar better known as the Dome of the Rock. That rock being the rock that Abraham built the altar.

  1. In Genesis 22:9 we read, “And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.”

    We know that the rock on Mount Moriah is too huge for Abraham to lift, so are you saying that he built an altar of rocks on top of the big rock or just on the mountain?

    How do we know it was on Mount Moriah, because the Bible doesn’t actually name the mountain, does it?.
