 Nicolae Roddy /Abraham The Boier   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Testament of Abraham (as the narrative is known to present day scholars) had been adopted and adapted by early Christians and along with a host of other literary works was copied and preserved by Byzantine monks for well over a millennium.
He was aware that in the wake of Ottoman expansion into eastern Europe, especially during the Phanariot period (1711–1821) in which he was living, a significant amount of Greek literature was funneling into the Romanian Principalities through monasteries like his own and merging with the vast body of Slavic literature that preceded it.
Fearing that Abraham would eventually eradicate the entire human population, God instructs the Archangel to escort Abraham to the place of heavenly Judgment, whereupon the patriarch has an opportunity to learn a lesson about mercy.

 LDS FAQ: Ancient Evidences for the Book of Abraham: Other Records Confirm its Story
Abraham 1:15-17 has the Lord speaking to Abraham as he is on the altar, explaining that he has "come down" to rescue Abraham, but this occurs as the "angel of his presence" stood by Abraham.
Abraham 1:5-7 indicate that his fathers, in their rebellion, refused to listen to Abraham and "endeavored to take away my life by the hand of the priest of Elkenah" who was a priest of Pharaoh in the land of Chaldea.

Abraham on Trial: The Social Legacy of Biblical Myth analyzes the Father of Faith as a progenitor of pathology.
Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son Isaac, argues author Carol Lowery Delaney, left an ethical legacy of abuse that has overpowered the biblical imperative to protect and nurture one's children.
It is time, Delaney says, to re-examine and re-envision the legacy of the biblical narrative of supreme Abrahamic faith which denies voice and value to women and children, whether in biblical or koranic studies or in Freud's parallel Oedipal ideas which ignore the deeds of the father against the child.

Philo of Alexandria, a Hellenized Jew, is a figure that spans two cultures, the Greek and the Hebrew.
