The Great Myths #18: The Sacrifice of Isaac (Jewish)

  1. Certainly Jews don’t own the story, but neither of the other Abrahamics would have it without them remembering it first. In the same way I’d say a story about Jesus was Christian, even though Muslims remember him & refer to him as well. & don’t some strains of Islam say it was Ishmael, not Isaac, who was the purported sacrifice? Another reason to highlight the story from Genesis as Jewish, while admitting everybody else can take it too.
