The Binding of Isaac—An Alternative Reading

Text & Thought

Do you find the story of the Binding of Isaac troubling? In this session we will investigate our understanding of this story, how the midrash has shaped it, and why that point of view was widely adopted. A careful study of the Biblical text will reveal an alternative reading, which is nuanced, thought-provoking, and sheds new light on Abraham’s faith.
