Welcome to our podcast where we take a deep dive into the holy scriptures with the sole purpose of illuminating the story being told; the responsibility of all teachers of the bible.
Today we hear the mashal of Genesis 23 where Abraham is curiously rejecting the mercy of his enemy and seeks to buy the gift of the land as a possession for himself. Let us be attentive!

In today’s episode we hear the story of Abraham being commanded by the Scriptural God to sacrifice Isaac. This is a very famous story from the Bible and is used by various different people to make various different assertions about God and the Bible, but today you will hear from us not an assertion, not simply another manipulation of the Biblical story, but an explanation of the Biblical story. We cannot use the Bible for anything- we can only listen to it and choose whether or not we will align our behavior with God’s will, as the Biblical character Abraham is commanded to in this chapter. Come and hear the story. Intro and outro music Copyright © Holy Transfiguration Monastery, Brookline, MA, used by permission. All rights reserved.
