Parsha:
Toldot 

Description

The similarities between events of Avraham and Yitzchak's life are clear. Both had trouble conceiving a child, both had problems with their wells, both claimed their wife was their sister, and the list goes on. Does this mean that Yitzchak was just a "place-holder" for Avraham, or is there more to the story? An article by Rav Amnon Bazak offers a fascinating approach. See also - Tosafot Hashalem - Parshat Toldot. Pg. א It is quoted in footnote 2 on pg 220 in Da'at Mikra - Bereishit Vol II.
