Binding Of Isaac

Courtesy of a post from Dr. Stephen Cook,  professor of Old Testament and Hebrew Bible at Virginia Theological Seminary, comes this image by Phillip Ratner depicting the "Binding of Isaac" from Genesis 22.  This story is my favorite from all scripture.  Ratner captured everything in one image.  Amazing!   Look closely to see the Angel of the Lord.

And here's a sculpture of the same story.

                    

Heart Of My Hearts and I will definitely be visiting the Dennis and Phillip Ratner Museum (10001 Old Georgetown Road; Bethesda, MD) in the very near future.  Anyone for a field trip?  It looks like they have some very cool work!
