Beschreibung

The Sacrifice of Isaac is one of the most well-known stories in the Bible. It is also a shocking account of how Abrahams faith in God was demonstrated by a willingness to sacrifice his long-awaited son at Gods command. This story has been a source of fascination for Jews and Christians for many centuries and Edward Kessler offers an enthralling account of their interpretations, explaining that neither can be understood properly without reference to the other. Compelling and convincing, this book makes a valuable contribution to the field.

Pressestimmen

'His book adds a new dimension to the study of the subject in late antiquity ... Edward Kessler's contribution will be indispensable to students of the Akedah and deserves a wide readership.' Jewish Chronicle 'Kessler is able to show not only that Christian interpretations of Genesis 22 were influenced by rabbinic discussions, but also, and more surprisingly, that rabbis were not afraid to borrow Christian ideas, and not always in order to refute them. The book thus contributes to the recent consensus that Judaism and Christianity, as we now know them, share many common roots, and that neither would have taken the shape it did without the stimulus provided by the other. This challenges widespread perceptions in both religions. Here it is illustrated with solid and detailed evidence.' Church Times '... this welcome study of Genesis 22 affords a wealth of material and raises many important questions.' Journal for the Study of the Old Testament 'This is a fascinating book and a work of meticulous scholarship.' Theology 'Scholarly in its detailed analysis... each chapter is helpfully divided into the same three sections... making it easy to follow the arguments.' Epworth Review
