Tzemah Yoreh
Abraham In Canaan
In the earliest version of the Abraham story, Abraham doesn’t come to Canaan from Syria, he was always there. Abraham still goes to the land of Moriah to sacrifice his son, but in the earliest version of the story no angel stays his hand and he actually kills his son. In this and many other respects, the earliest version of Abraham story is very different from what those familiar with the canonical text may recall. Abraham in Canaan traces the development of this uniquely divergent account and its slow development into the canonical text we have today.
