I have a big problem with this, check my last edit - I think we should emphasise the importance of Abraham of casting off his love for his son at the behest of God as being a wicked thing, but since it stems from God it is an example of Abraham's devotion to God. Does that make sense?

Personally, I think it detracts. It never says in Scripture that Abraham casts off all love for his son, only that he is obedient to God's instructions. I don't believe we should add information that isn't there. The story speaks well for itself (in my opinion). Learn together 14:31, 19 July 2007 (EDT)
I agree, if we add whatever make-believe to the Biblical story that we want to then we are no better then Wikipedia

Topic on specific date usage within the context of early biblical history.

I'm new here so please bear with me :)

My Subject of Discussion is (are) with the dates being used on this and many other pages reflecting biblical chronology. We seem to be using very precise dates, when in fact (biblical studies) demonstrate that we can only come close, even assuming a Young Earth (approx 4000 BC date for creation). I would think it would be more factual to prefix most of these dates given with either "Circa" or "ca", and even perhaps a range of dates, (i.e.; ca 1975 BC - 1950 BC) when an exact year can not be realistically computed. This type of edit would I think provide more validity to the article as a whole. Thoughts anyone ? Unless of course you can actually cite a source for the very specific date(s) being used.
