READ:

  • HURWITZ: Chapter 4 pp 85 -94
  • HONORING TRADITION: Sacred Texts, pp 427- 468
  • Genesis Chapters 21 and 22

Genesis 22, the story of “The Akedah”, or the Binding of Isaac is a foundational story in Judaism, and a deeply troubling and complex one. It has been the subject of commentary and discussion by theologians and philosophers until today.I want to use it as a starting point for text study)
