in response to reader comment: contradiction

kid,

this is where we differ, it is very clear from the bible that Hagar is the wife of Abraham,

Genesis 16:3 And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife."

So she is a legitimate wife and Ishmael is a legitimate sone.

I say God made covenant to Abraham through Ishmael and Isaac.

Since Ishmael was the only son before the birth of Isaac then he is the person that was to be sacrificed. "you only son" that is before the birth of Isaac, and we know that Abraham and Ishmael were tested in Mecca and when Ishamel was youn boy and before the birth of Isaac.

I don't like your comment about Mohammad (pbuh) because they are baseless. I believe that the only people who follow satan are the Jews

Who is that Great nation mentioned in this bible, that God promised Abraham through Ishmael?

"Genesis 21:18 Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation."

We know that God was testing Abraham faith, but through the sacrifice of Ishmael
