Abraham

Abraham believed there was only one, true God.

Abraham is known as the Father of the Jews. He created a covenant with the Lord, displayed in these verses, " As for me, this is my covenant with you: You will be the father of many nations" . . . " Then God said to Abraham, ' As for you, you must keep my covenant, you and your descendants after you for generations to come. ' " Genesis 17: 4, Genesis 17: 9. These two verses answer the question: What is Abraham asked to do and what will God to in return? God will make Abraham the father of many nations if he and his descendants keep the covenant between God and him. After this covenant, he migrated to Canaan to start the Jewish Population. He ( 100 years old ) and his wife Sarah ( 90 years old ) gave birth to their son Isaac and Abraham's nation would continue to grow for nations to come.
