Story of Abraham, from the Hebrew Bible

http://www.wsu.edu:8080/~wldciv/world_civ_reader/world_civ_reader_1/abraham.html

Rating: 3, Medium.

Description: When the Jews tried to explain that the Land of Israel was theirs by divine right though they acknowledged that their ancestors had not originated there, they pointed to the promise made to Abraham (originally from the Neobabylonian city of Ur). Although the modern Zionist movement was largely non-religious, the idea of the "promised land" has had a powerful influence in creating and maintaining the modern state of Israel. This same story also tells of the origin of another people, the offspring of Ishmael, whom Muslims identify as the Arabs. Both religions therefore trace their origins back to Abraham, and both hold the land of Israel sacred, though neither accepts the other's claims. Standard 6.3.3 and 10.9.6

Comments: This is a critical document for understanding the issues in the Middle East.

Resource Type: Primary Source Text.
