    Abraham or Abram, 1996-1822 lived 174 years and was the father of the Hebrew Nation. (Heb. "father is exalted") He was the first patriarch, and the founder of the Hebrew nation. In Jewish, Christian and Moslem tradition, he emerges as a father-figure.
    --------
    Abraham. The patriarch who was the father of the people of God, Abraham left the security and comfort of Ur because of the call of God. Promised a land and descendants, Abraham lived most of his life without either, having to live on trust. God entered into a covenant with Abraham, assuring him that he kept His word. Finally in his old age, a son called Isaac was born to Abraham and his wife, Sarah. Abraham's supreme test of faith came when God apparently went against his own promise and ordered Abraham to sacrifice the boy. Abraham obediently prepared to carry out the orders, but was stayed at the last minute when God intervened. Abraham finally secured a piece of land in the Promised Land when he bought a plot with a cave at Machpelah, where both Sarah and he were buried. Appropriately, his name in Hebrew means "father of a multitude," and he is revered as the spiritual ancestor of all jews and Christians. Genesis 11-25
    --------------------------
    Abraham 1:31 But the records of the fathers, even the patriarchs, concerning the right of Priesthood, the Lord my God preserved in mine own hands; therefore a knowledge of the beginning of the creation, and also of the planets, and of the stars, as they were made known unto the fathers, have I kept even unto this day, and I shall endeavor to write some of these things upon this record, for the benefit of my posterity that shall come after me.

            Page: Abraham
            Text: Abraham or Abram, biblical patriarch, according to the Book of Genesis(see 11:27-25:10), prog enitor of the Hebrews, who probably lived in theperiod between 2000 and 1500 BC. Abraham is regarded by Muslims, who call him Ibrahim, as an ancestor of the Arabs through Ishmael. He was once considered a contemporary ofHammurabi, king of Babylonia. Because the biblical account of his life is based on traditions preserved by oral transmission rather than by historical records, no biography in the present sense can be written.

            Originally called Abram, Abraham was the son of Terah, a descendant of Shem, and was born in the city of Ur of the Chaldees, where he married his half sister Sarai, or Sarah.

            They left Ur with his nephew Lot and Lot's family under a divine inspiration and went to Haran.

            Receiving a promise that God would make him a "great nation," Abram moved on to Canaan, where he lived as a nomad. Famine led him to Egypt, but he was driven out for misrepresenting Sarai as his sister.

            Again in Canaan, after quarrels between Abram and Lot and their herdsmen, they separated, Lot remaining near Sodom and Abram continuing his nomadic life.

            He later rescued Lot from the captivity of King Chedorlaomer of Elam and was blessed by the priest Melchizedek, king of Salem. Then God promised Abram a son by his wife Sarai, repeated his earlier promises, and confirmed these by a covenant.

            When this covenant was later renewed, the rite of circumcision was established, Abram's name became Abraham, and Sarai's became Sarah. God subsequently repeated his promise of a son by Sarah by means of visiting angels.

            When God informed Abraham that he intended to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah because of the wickedness of their inhabitants, Abraham pleaded with him to spare the cities. Eventually it was agreed that God would spare the cities if he could find only ten righteous men. The ten men could not be found, and God destroyed both cities.

            Ishmael, first son of Abraham, whose mother was Hagar, an Egyptian slave, was born when Abraham was 86 years old. Isaac, born to Abraham by Sarah in his 100th year, was the first of his legitimate descendants. God demanded that Abraham sacrifice Isaac as a test of faith, but because of Abraham's unquestioning compliance, God permitted him to spare Isaac and rewarded Abraham with a formal renewal of his promise.

            After Sarah died, Abraham married Keturah and had six sons by her.

            He died at the biblical age of 175 and was buried beside Sarah in the Cave of Machpelah, in what is now Hebron, West Bank. Christians, Muslims, and Jews accept Abraham as an epitome of the man of unswerving faith, a view reflected in the New Testament.

            "road"
            First mention: Genesis 11:31

            For some mysterious reason, Abraham's father, Terah, decided to move his entire extended family from the hub of civilization to the boondocks about a one-thousand-mile walk away. By today's map, what he planned was a move from Iraq to Israel. But he ended up in Haran, a village in south Turkey, near the Syrian border.

            It could be that Terah saw signs of the invasion that destroyed his riverside hometown, Ur, in about 20000 BC. For whatever reason, he decided to follow the caravan routes up the Euphrates river valley, then down the Mediterranean coastline to canaan. But he apparently liked the wonderful pastures and plentiful water he saw in Haran some six hundred miles upriver. So he stayed. After he died, Abraham finished the journey, at God's instruction. Canaan became the land God promnised to Abraham's descendants, the Jews.

            (mahk PEE lah)
            Makpela, Hebrew
            First mention: Genesis 23:9

            In what is now Hebron, a Palestinian town about twenty miles south of Jerusalem, Abraham bought a field to serve as his famly cemetery. His wife, Sarah, had died, and Abraham buried her on this property in a cave called Machpelah. Later, Abraham was buried there, too, along with his son Isaac and wife Rebekah, Jacob and Leah, and later Jacob's son Joseph.

            Herod the Great enshrined the cave in a massive building that's still standing and visited by tourists. In 1119, during Crusader-Muslim wars, an expedition into the chambers below the building reportedly turned up bones. A brief search after the Six-Day War of 1967 revealed three tombstones and an Arabic inscription about Allah, but no bones.
