Why didn't Yitzchak help his father?
  • In Bereishis 22, the story of the עקידת יצחק (binding of Isaac) takes place. When Avraham sets up the altar in Bereishis 22:9, the Pasuk says:
  • > וַיָּבֹ֗אוּ אֶֽל־הַמָּקוֹם֮ אֲשֶׁ֣ר אָֽמַר־ל֣וֹ הָאֱלֹהִים֒ וַיִּ֨בֶן שָׁ֤ם אַבְרָהָם֙ אֶת־הַמִּזְבֵּ֔חַ וַֽיַּעֲרֹ֖ךְ אֶת־הָעֵצִ֑ים וַֽיַּעֲקֹד֙ אֶת־יִצְחָ֣ק בְּנ֔וֹ וַיָּ֤שֶׂם אֹתוֹ֙ עַל־הַמִּזְבֵּ֔חַ מִמַּ֖עַל לָעֵצִֽים
  • > They arrived at the place of which God had told him. **Abraham** built an altar there; he (**Abraham**) laid out the wood; he (**Abraham**) bound his son Isaac; he (**Abraham**) laid him on the altar, on top of the wood.
  • Why didn't Yitzchak help his father to set up the altar, wood, and get on the altar (or why isn't there any mention of it)? What happened to the Mitzvah of Kibbud Av Veim (honoring your parents)?
  • In Bereishis 22, the story of the עקידת יצחק (binding of Isaac) takes place. When Avraham sets up the altar in Bereishis 22:6, the Pasuk says:
