CAPE MAY – "The Sacrifice,” a new musical adaption of the ancient story of Abraham and Isaac, written by Jane Sbarra, will be presented at the Church of the Advent in Cape May on at 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 20 and 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 21.

Inspired by James Goodman's book, "But Where Is the Lamb?" and a sermon by Robert Reader, this presentation includes Abraham's wife, Sarah, who is not in the original Bible story. Abraham's obedience to God's command to sacrifice his son is challenged by Sarah's horror and anguish. This powerful struggle reveals Abraham's own pain made more intense by Isaac's innocence and eagerness to accompany his father to the sacrifice, not knowing that he is the "lamb.”
