Isaac's Death and Resurrection
In the earliest version of Isaacís story, Isaac has a very short life. He is killed for his fatherís sins in Genesis 22 and is only resurrected by later authors. The newly animated Isaac leads a long and interesting life remarkably like his fatherís. Isaacís Death and Resurrection traces the development of the Isaac story from its divergent beginnings into the canonical text of Genesis.
