Does this mean Abraham "saw" this in his own time while he was still alive and on the earth, or did He mean that Abraham had seen Jesus in heaven? Or did Jesus mean this in some other way?
NKJV - 56 "Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad."

Abraham Saw Three Things Clearly: 1. The plan of God in sending the Messiah for His people to redeem them and guarantee to them the land of Canaan as an everlasting possession; and he was happy (Gen. 12:1- 3 17:1- 22). 2. He saw the plan of God in the Messiah being sent through his natural seed (Rom. 4:13- 22 9:4- 7 Gal. 3:16) and rejoiced by faith (Rom. 4). 3. He saw the second person of the Trinity in visible form (Gen. 18:1- 8, 19- 20 19:24).
