Abraham (father of the jews).

Abraham (original name Abram) was born in 2000 B.C.E. He only belived in one God witch is called monotheism. In one of his dreams God visits Abram and said "leave your own country and your fathers house".God promised to make Abram the father of a great nation of people. In 1950 B.C.E Abram gathers his clan and goes to Canan. His new name is Abraham. When Abraham was 100 and sarah was 90 they had a son named Isaac. Abraham introduced the belief in a single god. Because of his covenant (a covenant= an agreement or promise) with god the jews belived that they should set an example of how to live. these beliefs became a central part of Judism.
