Ur and Babylon: The life and times of Abraham   $4.00

Ur and Babylon: The life and times of Abraham, the location of Ur of the Kasdim and its connection to the Samaritans and the Babylonian exile.

One of the most inspiring stories of mankind is that of the Patriarch Abraham, Avraham Avinu, the founder of the Jewish people. Raised in a pagan milieu, Abraham revolted against his surrounding culture, sought and found G-d, and left the home of his youth, Ur, or perhaps Cutha, part of the Babylonian empire, and went on from there, first to Haran and later to Canaan, to become the founder of one of the most enduring cultures on earth. One of the great coincidences of history is that after the destruction of the First Temple, the Bayis Rishon, Abrahamís descendants eventually resettled in his former home, Babylon, and the descendants of his former neighbors, the Cutheans and Babylonians, resettled the former northern kingdom of Yisrael, Israel, the place where Abraham and his descendants originally settled. This lecture gives an in-depth view of life, culture, and education in Ur during the time of Abraham, and traces the history and coincidences in the life of Abraham and that of his descendants.
