The story Isaac is about tests of faith.
God commanded Abraham to sacrifice Isaac, his only son, born after Abraham and Sarah had given up hope of conceiving.
Once Isaac was bound and placed on the altar, God stayed Abraham’s hand. “Now I know you fear God.”
You know the rest.
It just struck me this morning, listening to the weather during Jamie Allman’s show, that Isaac now threatens the GOP convention, dangling above Tampa like Abraham’s dagger.
