Abraham: A Paradigm of Faith - ... Abraham promptly protests and identifies that his current heir is not his progeny, but instead will be a legal heir, Eliezer of Damascus (15.2-3). YHWH meets Abraham’s uncertainty by reaffirming the particulars of the promise: the heir will be Abraham’s own seed (15.4). Thus YHWH eliminates the second potential heir. In response to this word, Abraham supplements his alter building by making a sacrifice to YHWH (15.4-5, 9-11). After the rejection of Eliezer, Sarah intervenes and to create a more legitimate potential heir....   [tags: Scripture Analysis ]

Abraham's Obedience: A Biblical Epic - ... 9). The text also sums up the time period in verse 14 by stating: “And Abraham named that place The Lord Will Provide, so today it is said: 'It will be provided on the Lord's mountain.'” As the story progresses, cultural ties amount to a communal nature common to the epic genre. Another characteristic of epic which is found within Abraham's Obedience is the use of ritual to portray a formal literary structure. The author begins by promptly providing the focus of his subject, in medias res: “God tested Abraham and said to him, 'Abraham!...take your only son Isaac, whom you love, go the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering” (22:1-2)....   [tags: The Bible] 1167 words

God Promises to Abraham - ... It is intriguing that God would ask Abraham to sacrifice the only son Sarah bore him. The first line in the story of child sacrifice in Genesis states that God’s request to sacrifice Abraham’s child, Isaac, is only a test. God has ordered Abraham various tasks (i.e. to move to an “alien land” and circumcise every male in the household) and “after these things God tested Abraham” (Genesis 22:1). The intent is to gauge the faithfulness of God’s chosen patriarch. God chose words to describe Isaac with emotional and loving connotations, like “your only son…whom you love” (22:2)....   [tags: Religion, Genesis, Child Sacrifices] 1443 words

Before Abraham, I AM - ... When Jesus claimed to be “I AM,” He was making a similar claim to the more obvious statement that He was one with the Father. By stating “I AM,” Jesus had used of Himself the name God had revealed to Moses; when Moses had asked God for His name to take back to the Israelites, God had responded “I Am Who I Am.”7 God was not refusing to answer Mose’s question, nor was He being evasive. Rather, He was revealing some of His unique nature. God was indicating His self-existence, self-sufficiency, and His absolute immutability.8 If Jesus had been born or created at some point in the past, He might have said, “before Abraham was, I was.” By using “I AM,” Jesus was associating Himself with the Father’s self-existence and eternality....   [tags: Scripture Analysis ]

David Donald's Lincoln - In writing Lincoln, David Donald set out to do two things: one, to provide an in-depth explanation of Lincoln’s decision-making process, and two, to highlight the “essential passivity of his nature” (14). Unfortunately, he succeeded in only one of these. It was the former that he accomplished. The inspiration for the explanation-style narrative came from something President John F. Kennedy once confided in Donald. President Kennedy, perturbed by the practice of ranking presidents and by how his own administration would be looked upon in the future, complained to Donald that “no one has a right to grade a President…who has not sat in his chair, examined the mail and information that came across his desk, and learned why he made his decisions” (Donald 13)....   [tags: Literature Reviwe] 2000 words
