Abraham (originally named Abram), the Patriarch of the Hebrews and Arabs, was one of the descendants of Shem through his son Arphaxad. Abraham was called by Yahweh (GOD) to leave his father Terah’s house and native land of Chaldea for a new land, family, and inheritance in Canaan, the Promised Land.

Yahweh made a Covenant with Abraham by which he would have to walk in the Commandments of the Lord and GOD would bless him with numerous descendants from his seed and numerous spiritual descendants from among the Gentile nations. Abraham is the spiritual father of all those who seek Yahweh from the heart and are willing to go the distance to follow Yahweh’s ways and lifestyle, as he did. 1
