    Abraham that we now turn He lived at the dawn of the second millennium and became the ancestor of a people who have outlived all of their Ancient Near Eastern contemporaries There are Jews but there are no more Edomites or Assyrians or Babylonians or Hittites or Sumerians Who was Abraham and how did he live These are the questions on which we now must focus our attention as we move from the 3rd millennium to the second B The Birth and Childhood of Israel 1 Abraham ASSIGNMENT Read Genesis 12 25 Broadman Bible Commentary vol 1 pages 34 48 The story of Abraham brings us in our progress through the history of the Old Testament for the first time onto the stage of Biblical history Though quite frankly there is no archaeological evidence or extra biblical evidence of any kind to corroborate this material The first eleven chapters of Genesis have to do with the incursion and spread of sin while the story of Abraham begins the historical account of God s solution to the problem of sin Abraham is to be the father of many nations who will be blessed by him He will eventually be the ancestor of the one who solved the sin problem ultimately and completely Jesus the Christ Who was this Abraham whose name was Abram when we first meet him Abraham began life in one of the more significant city states of the Sumerian empire Ur Tell el Muqayyar in south Babylon was the political and religious center of Sumeria and Akkadia He migrated from there to Haran and eventually to Canaan The archaeologist W F Albright believed that Abraham was one of the many Donkey caravaners who traveled and traded along the route from the south of Sumeria to the borders of Egypt during the end of the 2nd millennium BC Abram or Abraham most likely means the father is exalted The situations which the Old Testament describe Abraham being involved in were typical of the nomadic lifestyle He lived in tents and not houses he struggled for position in the territory he inhabited as a stranger he conducted battles for possession of wells to supply his caravan with water and he traveled a great deal His travels took him to places like Bethel Shechem Hebron Beersheba Gerar Gilead Penuel and Succoth among others in the land of Canaan He worshipped at the sanctuaries of the Cannanites at Beersheba where El Olam was worshipped and at Beerlacharoi where El Roi was worshipped and at Shechem where Ba al Berith was worshipped Abraham s life was thus a migratory one wherein he was constantly moving from place to place Beyond these facts there is little that can be said about the historical Abraham Or indeed that there was a historical Abraham at all for according to Lemche the name is simply an eponym so we will move on to the next segment of Israel s history as described in the OT 2 The
