Abraham

Is the father of the Hebrew nation. He was raised in Ur in Lower Mesopotamia and, at the call of God, moved with his family to the land of Canaan. After a period in Egypt, he settled near Hebron, where God promised that his descendants would become a numerous nation though as yet he had no son. When Abraham was about one hundred years old, his aged wife Sarah bore a son, Isaac. Abraham was buried in the "Cave of Machpelah" near Hebron.
