As for Abraham’s accountability, what he must do is put on an indication of the covenant on his physique. besides all of the different males of his family, he needs to be circumcised: a specific piece of his epidermis has to be sliced off as a mark of the endless hyperlink among this kinfolk and God. apart from the truth that circumcision might sound like a strange strategy to sign a covenant, there’s one a part of this deal that’s stranger nonetheless. whilst God tells Abraham who in his family members has to be circumcised, it’s greater than simply Abraham and Isaac.
