In this class, Ross covers the sixteenth portion according to the ancient triennial cycle of Torah readings. This class contains the birth of the long-awaited seed of promise, a son to Abraham and Sarah. After a brief recap of the promises as they occur in Scripture, Ross moves into the story of Isaac’s birth and the subsequent banishment of Hagar and Ishmael. Finally, he challenges the allegory put forth by Paul in his letter to the Galatians. Is Paul correct to associate the one cast out to Sinai? Is the covenant at Sinai to be compared to the flesh and contrasted with the spirit? These and other points are discussed in this teaching on the birth of Isaac.
