Bible study 22 – Genesis 22

One day, God decides to test Abraham, by asking him to sacrifice “his only son” Isaac (I guess the bastard Ishmael doesn’t count). Abraham tells his servants and Isaac that God will provide them with a goat for sacrifice, and this is indeed what God does when Abraham puts the knife to his son’s throat and proves that he “fears God”. (Who wouldn’t fear this god? So far he has done much more harm than good to humans – apart from creating them in the first place, I guess.)

As a reward, God makes sure that Abraham’s relatives have lots of children.
