For the first meeting of the interfaith group, we'll be discussing the story of the binding of Isaac in Genesis 22. It is perhaps the essential text on the virtue of obedience in the Bible, and how to think about divine commands, especially when the reasons for them are hidden.

Dr. Yoo has agreed to attend the group. The readings include the key section of Genesis 22, as well as relevant passages from Hebrews and the Koran. Find the links below.
