Abraham's Journey





Abraham was born in Ur c1996 BCE. Ur was one of the major cities of Sumer, the home of the Sumerians, which is located in the south of modern day Iraq.

Abraham was 75 years old before receiving God's calling in Haran. Haran is now still called Harran is some 1000km north west of Ur in north western Mesopotamia.

From the age of 75 Abraham spent the next 100 years travelling south west through Damascus and Shechen before reaching Zoan. From Zoan he travelled north east to Hebron where he died at the age of 175.

Despite wandering for 100 years Abraham never received the Promises.
