"Abraham, our Father". Jews, Christians, and Muslims consider him father of the people of Israel through his son Isaac and his other son Ishmael.

On Eid ul-Adha, Muslims sacrifice a domestic animal a sheep, goat, cow, buffalo or camel as a symbol of Abraham's sacrifice, and divide the meat among the family members, friends, relatives, and most importantly, the poor.

Rebecca, that is news to me about Abraham being the son of David. Now I realize that David is the son of Abraham through the line of Judah. So do you know a David in Abraham's parentage? Please share so I can straighten out my thinking! Thanks. I do enjoy your posts.

Abraham is Father of the faithful. He is the Son of David. God told Abraham that his wife who was barren that she was going to bring forth a child at 90 yrs old, she had Isaac. God told Abraham to sacrifice his son, Isaac for an offering, Abraham was going to until the angel came and told him to stop and God seen how faithful Abraham. Abraham was obedient to God.

Abraham is a type-and-shadow of Jesus. He believed God and it was imputed to him as faith. Jesus believed God when He said, "Father, into thy hands I commit my spirit." Abraham is an example of God drawing us to Jesus prior to repentance. He received the covenant while in uncircumcision. Abraham is an example of what we should be. Willing to give EVERYTHING to follow the commandments of God. That's a few. Katherine.

One of the heroes of faith, In the Hebrews hall of fame. One of the 4 main covenant recipients. A TREMENDOUS impact on us - as through the covenant that God so graciously made with him...all nations are blessed.

Abraham was the father of Isaac, who in turn was the father of Jacob, also known as Israel. Israel had 12 sons, from whom came the 12 tribes of Israel and the Israeli nation.

Abraham was not the son of David. David was one of his decendents. Abram, (Abraham name before God changed it), son of Terah (Gen. 11:26) was the man that God choose to be the father of the nation Israel. The story begins in Gen 12. His sons, Jacob and Ishmael were the fathers of the Jewish and Arabic nations.

The family of Abraham, all the way to Joseph was dysfunctional; but we learn moral development from that family. He was given knowledge, and made a covenent with the Lord, an everlasting one. He was a complex man, sneeky and cowardly on one hand, and humble on another.(Sold his wife as a hooker to save his own skin!-Learned humility)

He is the 20th generation of man, born in 2025 B.C. YHWH God told him to leave his home, and he would make him a father of many nations. He is the patriarch of Judaism, and called the Friend of God. If we are baptised into Christ, then are we Abraham's offspring, and heirs according to the promise. Please read Galatians 3:27-29.
