The Akedah: Genesis 22:1-19

The Akedah ("The Binding") is the Jewish designation for the story in Genesis 22 where Abraham is called upon to sacrifice his son Isaac. It is one of the most important events narrated in Genesis. In this post Aaron Koller posits that, "Abraham passes the test of the Akedah but fails as a father." While I disagree with Koller's conclusion the post does provide an interesting study of the passage.
