Abraham and Isaac

10/13/2019

In this episode, we talk about the (in)famous story of Abraham and Issac. This saga is one of sacrifice, blind faith, and God providing, quite literally, in the nick of time. We grapple with some tough questions, attempt to explain the taboo (yet totally common) ancient practice of child sacrifice, and do it all with equal parts humor and insight. Oh, and SPOILER ALERT, Isaac doesn’t die. Phew. MENTIONS Check out our brand new Casting Page! Genesis 22 Genesis 13 Genesis...
