Abraham: One Man, One God is an episode of Mysteries Of The Bible that carefully studies and analyzes the story of Abraham.It is based from the book of Genesis from Chapter 11 to 25.Richard Kiley provides the narrative while Jean Simmons quotes the scriptures.Interviews from experts such as Rabbi David Wolpe,Walter Zanger,Dr. Nahum Sarna,Dr. Marc Z. Brettler, William G. Dever, and Dr. Wadad Kadi were included.
The episode starts with Abraham's destruction of the idols worshiped by his family.With this event,he realizes that worship of idols isn't the way to go but monotheism or the worship of one God.Then the experts explores his journey of faith when God promises him to become the father of many descendants,the covenant between him and God and the aborted sacrifice of Isaac that Abraham made to God.
I enjoyed this episode a lot because it made revelations about Abraham's psyche and psychology especially those that would not be revealed in the Scriptures.Added to that,the exploration of the relationship between Isaac and Abraham after the aborted sacrifice that the latter made was truly interesting considering that a father almost killing his son would somehow had a lasting impact on a parent-child relationship.Apart from that,the birth of monotheism was also explored since many have considered Abraham to be the father of many religions that has belief in one God such as Christianity,Judaism and Islam.Indeed,a viewer will be treated with knowledge of Israel's first patriarch not only on what is stated in the Bible but also with regards to his mindset as an individual.
