Abraham, which means father of a multitude, was a prophet and the founder of the Hebrew nation. Abraham was born in Ur of the Chaldees. At the age of seventy-five, Abraham, his nephew, Lot, and his wife Sarai (or Sarah), traveled to the land of Canaan on God's command. God promised Abraham that he would become the founder of a great nation.
Abraham had a son, Ishmael, with the handmaiden Hagar. Later he and Sarah had a son, who was named Isaac. At one point, God tested Abraham's faith by commanding him to make a sacrifice of Isaac, which he began to do, until an angel interceded on God's behalf.
Abraham died at the age of 175 and was laid beside Sarah in the tomb of Machpelah by his sons Isaac and Ishmael. Click on the pictures of Abraham below to see more details about saving a free image or to purchase an image of Abraham at a higher resolution.
