Re: Genesis 22:2 (God commanded Abraham to offer Isaac for a burnt offering)

I say, "you're missing the point of the story."

The practice of sacrificing one's firstborn child to the gods was normative among the Canaanites that Israel.  The point of the story is to differentiate God from the Canaanite gods.

There are many points that the story makes. But what is in question is the commandment to kill, even to kill one's son.
