The Screen Guide

God commands Abraham to take his son, Isaac, to the sacred mountain and sacrifice him there. Abraham tells Sarah of God’s demand. She packs Isaac’s clothes into a small bag for the journey while Abraham selects his killing knife. Abraham drives Isaac to the mountain while Sarah waits at home. Father and son spend the night in a motel. The next morning Abraham drives his son to the mountain. When they arrive Isaac asks his father “where is the lamb for the sacrifice?” Abraham tells him God will provide it. Abraham walks his son to the top of the mountain and binds his hands. He prostrates the youth, obedient to God, raises his knife, set to run the deep cut. But, as in the original version Abraham isn’t compelled to complete the sacrifice. But, unlike the original, he’s left alone on the mountain, devastated by what he’s done, while Isaac runs away.
