re. "biblical complexity

Reader comment on item: Imperial Israel: The Nile-to-Euphrates Calumny

Submitted by Tim Parks (United States), Oct 23, 2015 at 18:26

Oct. 23, 2015 Dear Daniel, Re. point 3 in your discussion on biblical complexitly you state that "the covenant" was fulfilled in the arabs because they are children of Abraham(cousins or brothers?). Please read in this wks parsha, Genesis 17:21 in context, where G-d states that the covenant is to be through Sarahs' son Isaac. ...ie.Isaac or Ishmael, Jacob or Esau? What does G-d say re. Esau?

Shalom, Tim Parks
