Abraham, the Syrian

Abram, a Syrian, was the son of Terah, a brother to Nahor and Haran. He was born in Ur of the Chaldees. Abram married Sarai. Later God changed Abram's name to Abraham.

Abram/Abraham set in History

From the creation of the earth until Abram's birth was about 1949 years. Abram was born about 292 years after the flood and 640 years before Moses was born. Abram died roughly 465 years before Moses was born. It is very detailed how to make this calculation of years and there is some guessing with a dozen years plus or minus.

Genealogy - Abram, the Tenth from Noah

Abram was the tenth generation from Noah. Abram was the son of Terah. Terah was the son of Nahor. Nahor was the son of Serug, the son of Reu, the son of Peleg, the son of Eber, the son of Salah, the son of Arphaxad, the son of Shem, the son of Noah (1056-2006 after creation).

Noah lived from about 1057 years after creation to 2007 years after creation for total of 950 years, see Gen 9:29. Abram was 57 years old when Noah died. Because Noah lived so long, if Abram and Noah were in the same location they could have talked. Noah could have told Abram personally about how he had faith in God, built the ark and he and his sons and wives were saved from the flood by God.

Abram's Wife and Children

When Abram was 99 years old, God changed his name from Abram to Abraham. At age 77 (Gen 17:24) Abram had a son Ishmael (through his wife's handmaiden). At age 100, Abraham had a son Isaac by Sarai (her name later changed to Sarah), as God had promised him. After Sarah passed away, Abram married Keturah, Gen 25:21. Besides Ishmael and Isaac, Abraham had Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak and Shuah. But Abraham's inheritance all went to his promised son Isaac. Abraham lived for 175 years and died about 2124 years after creation.

Abrahams Descendents to Moses

Abraham was the father of Isaac. Isaac had a son Jacob. Jacob had many sons, one of which was Levi. Levi had Kohath. Kohath had Amram. Amram married Jochebed and had Aaron and Moses. Abraham was the great, great, great, great grandfather of Moses (2589-2709 after creation).

Moving to Haran in Canaan

God's Promise to Abram

Gen 12:1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Abram Asks Sarai to Help Him

Abram was afraid that people might kill him and take his beautiful wife, so he asked Sarai to tell people that she was his sister (which she was). Sarai was his father's daughter by another wife.

Gen 12:15+ The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house. And he entreated Abram well for her sake: and he had sheep, and oxen, and he asses, and menservants, and maidservants, and she asses, and camels.

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.
