Who fathered Isaac?: I have KNOWN Sarah and she shall give birth to a boy


While deleting ‘sent items’ from a discontinued email provider I came upon this May 21, 2016 response that a “Jewish man” gave to a comment from what was most likely an old Breaking Israel News article?

I’ve never doubted the “divine conception” of Sarah, who was barren 90 years and past the way of women 40 years because her and Abraham’s scenario, paralleled the “sacred womb” of Elizabeth and the aged Zechariah in Luke 1:13-25.

What intrigued me was his usage of HaShem and the Hebrew while including Isaiah 7:13-16 in his response that Christianity and Messianic Judaism quote to as pointing to Yeshua, wherein it is evident that his first sentence is pointing to Isaac because Protestantism would never call the “Immaculate Conception” blasphemous.

His response;

I am a Jew, and I worship as a Jew and before you say it is blasphemy for HaShem to bring to fruition a child in a human woman, read the Tanakh carefully and correctly. Who, exactly, fathered Isaac?

Look closely at these verses: Genesis 15:18 The same day the LORD cut a covenant with Abram, saying, seed given land, river of Egypt unto great river, the river Euphrates: HaShem did not say "unto your seed etc." He said, "Seed".

God changed Abram's name and Sarai's name to Abraham and Sarah, inserting part of His own name, the letter H into their names because they were to become foster parents to His son, Isaac. God's son, Isaac, was to be brought to fruition in Sarah's womb.

Let us begin with the poorly translated Genesis 17:4 God did not tell Abraham, "You will father many nations"; an accurate translation demonstrates that God said, "I covenant father many nations."
Genesis 17:4 'aniy beriyth ab hamown gowy The verse reads, "I am the covenanted father of many nations."

Genesis 17:16 Barak nathan ben barak gowy melek 'am
Genesis 17:16 I will bless her with a son bless "gowy" (gentile) king of people.
"I will bless her with a son". This verse can read "with a son who will be a gentile king of people."

Genesis 17:17 Abraham fell upon his face laughing, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?

HaShem answered, "I have KNOWN Sarah and she shall give birth to a boy,"

Genesis 17:19 Eloyim 'amar Sarah 'ishshah YALAD ben 'abal qara shem Yitschaq quwm beriyth 'owlam beriyth zera' achar

Genesis 17:19 "Eloyim said Sarah the woman YALAD (I have known) a boy DEFINITELY call his name Isaac raise covenant eternal covenant continue."

HaShem named the miracle child "Isaac" (he laughs) because of Abraham and Sarah's reaction when God told Abraham that Sarah was going to have a son.

Isaac's birth brought great happiness to his foster parents. And then came the day when Isaac's true father showed up and told Abraham to bind Isaac and offer him back to HaShem.

HaShem refers to Isaac as "ben yachiyd" Genesis 22:2 'amar laqach ben yachid Yitschaq 'ahab yalak 'erets Mowriyah `alah `olah 'echad har 'amar

Genesis 22:2 does not say, "Your only son Isaac"; it reads "He said, Take son only Isaac love go land Moriah ascend one mountain said."

"Take (My) only/unique/solitary son Isaac (who I) love and go to the land Moriah etc."
HaShem, the father of the human race, can certainly produce a child through any means and through any women whom He so chooses.

Isaiah 7:13-16 He said, Hear ye now, O house of David; Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also? The Lord shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin ('alma: young, unmarried woman) shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good. For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land that thou abhor shall be forsaken of both her kings.


I’ve added;

The prophet Isaiah recorded Isaiah 7:13-16, some 1200 years after Isaac.

This fulfillment paraphrased here, is recorded in Luke 1:26-35, wherein the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a virgin named Mary, he told her she would conceive and bring forth a son who the Lord God would give reign over the house of Jacob forever. Mary asked the angel how that shall be? He answered, the Holy Ghost shall come in the power of the Highest and overshadow you and born of you, he shall be called the Son of God.

For additional reading;

To those of you on this mailing who deny the “conception of Mary”, read Matthew 10:32-33 with fear and trembling.
