Offering Isaac As A Sacrifice
21 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In The Test,Superbook takes back Chris,Joy and Gizmo during the time of Abraham.

Upon being brought back in the past,they got to meet Abraham and his wife Sarah.The episode started with the story about the promise that God made to Abraham into becoming the "father of all nations";the announcement of three mysterious people to the couple on how Sarah at an old age will give birth to their first son; and how Isaac got his name.As the story of the episode progressed,God called upon Abraham to offer Isaac as a sacrifice.Full of faith in the Lord,he immediately brought his young son to a mountain place.As he was about to kill Isaac,Abraham heard a voice from the sky and stopped him from doing it.It pleased God for he has shown tremendous faith in him.

The episode I felt provided some controversy back in the day as Superbook episodes aren't close to what was written in the scriptures.In fact,we get to see Chris trying to stop Abraham from killing Isaac.But Abraham pushed him away.That is why in the second season,the main characters practically do not communicate with the Biblical characters.But I personally find this not an issue.In fact,anyone in Chris' place would probably stop Abraham.

Overall,it was a great episode about faith shown by Abraham who has complete faith in the Lord that viewers would like to have in life.
