A flinty blade poised over a young man’s heart—a heavenly command preventing the knife’s deadly descent—the drama of Abraham and Isaac is one of the Bible’s best beloved-stories. But what is its relevance for you? How do you apply this ancient account to your life today? What do you have in common with men and women who lived thousands of years ago in agrarian cultures that were vastly different than today’s world of computers and freeways and towering city skylines? When you read about the building of the temple in Israel or what Jesus had to say to the Pharisees about the laws of Israel, what timeless principles can you apply to your life?
