I'm with you excepting one detail. God already knew what Abraham would do. So it isn't god that needed to know that Abraham "feared" him. God didn't need to know anything. It's Abraham that needed to learn something from the experience, as well as those he related the story to after. The question is...what exactly was god teaching Abraham?

So what information do you think Jephtah had that lead him to conclude God would want a sacrifice?
Obviously he was relying on the information that God normally wants people to keep their oaths.
Further information about his attitude to human sacrifice wasn't being taken into consideration.

In reality he was practicing the very same beliefs our elite practice and was ritually sacrificing his son for "wisdom", the perks they think they're evil overlords give them and they also believe, immunity from karma.
Michael, Jaliel, also known as Jophiel and Zadkiel stopped him because they're the true Angels and Higher Ups, and set him straight.
There is also a possibility of it being a gnostic meaning only, except that that kind of thing always goes on amongst the elite and powerful.
