My favourite Bible story

Oh God said to Abraham, “Kill me a son”
Abe says, “Man, you must be puttin’ me on”
God say, “No.” Abe say, “What?”
God say, “You can do what you want Abe, but
The next time you see me comin’ you better run”
Well Abe says, “Where you want this killin’ done?”
God says, “Out on Highway 61.”

-Bob Dylan, “Highway 61 Revisited”

  1. I cant understand this story, but i understand that this is about Abraham(PBUH) and GOD’s conversation in sacrificing his son, Ismeal(PBUH).

  2. hearing that on a newly-purchased cd playing in the car going home was yet another time i fell in love with bob dylan. especially because i was in catholic school at the time.

  3. The soundtrack to I’m Not There has a fine version by Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs
