Abraham, the Father of Three Faiths

Lecture no. 5 from the course: Understanding the Old Testament

Abraham, the Father of Three Faiths

Taught by Professor Robert D. Miller II | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

In a deep look at the figure of Abraham, the spiritual father of three major religions, examine the features of the Covenant made between God and Abraham as Abraham embarks on his legendary journey. Study the three promises God makes, and what God asks of Abraham. Learn about the paradox embodied in God’s command that Abraham sacrifice his son, and what this signifies about the nature of faith.
