Question: abrahams sacrifice of his son isacc seen in the ancient...

Question details

Abraham’s sacrifice of his son Isacc seen in the ancient Hebrew historic environment of circa 1500 BCE and in our post Age of Reason and Enlightenment requires what Soren Kiergaard describes as “leap of faith” in a “state of fear and trembling.” He argues in his book, “Fear and Trembling,” that man must disregard reason (as exemplified by Hegel’s philosophic system) as a basis for religious belief in order to enter into that the ancient Hebrew historic environment of circa 1500 BCE. How would you react if you heard a ‘voice from God’ commanding you to kill one of your children? How would your child understand this situation?
