    Default Genesis 22 resources

    Though not directly exegetical resources, the most insightful readings of Genesis 22 with which I am familiar are:

    -Shalom Spiegel's The Last Trial
    -Erich Auerbach's "Odysseus' Scar" in Mimesis (online at:'_scar.htm )
    - Soren Kirkegaard's Fear and Trembling (online at: )

    But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

    Margaret May I suggest that we learn Hebrew text from the Hebrews!

    The Art Scroll Series by Mesorah Publications is an excellent place to start. This will give you a Hebrew perspective on the text as well as some exegetical insight and commentary.

    I use it for foundational studies, and then build from there.

    ISBN: 0-89906-362-4 two book series.
