A is for Abraham

(A is also for the only post I actually managed to finish, so this will probably be the only A-Z Challenge for 2016...)


Most of you probably know the story of Abraham and Isaac. (If not, brief summary: God promised Abraham he'd be the father of his peoples, but Abraham had no kids. But then MIRACLE, even though Abe and his wife Sarah are like 100 years old, Sarah has a son and they call him Isaac.

Some years letter, to test Abraham's faith, God tells Abe to offer his son Isaac as a sacrifice. So Abraham sets off on a camping trip with his son and when they get to the campsite, he prepares to murder Isaac and offer him as a sacrifice to God. Thankfully, God sends an angel to stop him at the last minute and congratulate him on his faithfulness.


I always wonder about their trip back home.


It must have been kind of awkward....










Have a good weekend, y'all!

  2. That would have been the perfect time to ask for a raise in his allowance.

  3. I participated in a read the entire Bible study with my church about two years ago. It took about a year and a half to do it, factoring in vacations and breaks and holidays.

    Anyway, you bring up an excellent point. I always wondered what this did to the relationship between Abraham and Isaac. The Bible never says that Isaac didn't trust his father again from that day forward, had an irrational fear of fire, or anything of that nature BUT they were both human beings. I know if my dad strapped me onto a board, preparing to offer me as a sacrifice... well, let's just say that no amount of therapy would undo that situation to make me okey dokey with it.

    I loved your interpretation. I can hear him asking them to not tell mom about this... she wouldn't get it. Sheesh. No kidding.

  4. Maybe God was like, "So Isaac, we're gonna play this sick prank on your dad. Play along."

  5. Wow, that's a truly warped and original way of looking at it. But if I were Abraham, it may well have went Tempest's way!

  7. I always wondered, what kind of God would ever ask a person to kill their own offspring as a show of loyalty? Love your comic ;)

  11. omg, I've never even considered the trip home, awkward! "Mum, you'll never guess what dad did..." hahahaha

    I actually had this story in my children's bible, how horrible is that?

  12. To be honest I only knew the second half of the story. The whole "Psychrafice" part. Huh. Firefox is claiming "Pyschrafice" is a word. Here's me thinking I invented it. I didn't realise he was also super old. Everyone in the old Testament was though I guess. Noah was like 900.
