In our third class on the Patriarchs we discuss the akeidah, and such questions as:
1) What exactly was the test, and why would God demand it?
2) Didn’t Hashem promise Avraham earlier that Yitzchack would be a great nation?
3) Did Hashem renege on the promise? If so, why?
4) If Hashem didn’t renege, and Avraham knew Yitzchak would be fine, what is the nature of the test of the akeidah?
All these, and more questions are answered; just click the links below for the class.
