Rabbi Brad Artson, Dean, Ziegler School of Rabbinics, AJU
“Unit. Corps. God. Country.” What about “my son?” Abraham our forefather, like marines Dawson and Downey, follows orders. After all, said Col. Jessup (and God), “We follow orders, or people die. It’s that simple.” But is it? We praise Abraham for his piety and fidelity, but when it was time to sacrifice his son Yitzhak, was that just God ordering one giant, horrible, “Code Red?” Did Abraham really pass his test? Or was Abraham supposed to break rank?
