What About Isaac?

Teaching this story to my students helped me attempt to see the story of Abraham's obedience from his son's point of view. Why did he stay so close to Rebekah? Why did he prefer Esau over Jacob?

  • Thank you for seeing it as God's imagination.  He does like to be creative and wants us to be also.  I would love to come to see you at the Well.  I will try to some time in August.
