But their variety, often noted, also raises literary and theological problems. Why do they differ. Abraham is known as the patriarch of the Israelite people through Isaac, the son born to him and Sarah in their old age and the patriarch of Arabs through his son Ishmael, born to Abraham and Hagar-his wife Sarai’s Egyptian slave-girl.

Abraham, the founding father of the Jewish nation of Israel, was a man of great faith and obedience to the will of God. His name in Hebrew means "father of a multitude."Originally called Abram, or "exalted father," the Lord changed his name to Abraham as a symbol of the covenant promise to multiply his descendants into a great nation that God would call his own.

There was also a spiritual promise that all nations would be blessed through Jesus Christ, who was a descendant of Abraham (Matthew ; Luke ). The book of Genesis says that God made a great promise to Abraham (the unconditional Abrahamic Covenant): “through you I will bless all the nations”.

That is. If the descendants of Abraham are blessed because God has intervened to judge and restore, the nations will rejoice in this act of covenant salvation, and will be blessed in the access that they have to the goodness of Israel’s God.

The nations benefit from the salvation of Israel because the political landscape of the region is now dominated.* His name was Abraham.
