Abraham was the father of who??

Abram the Hebrew was the father of the Hebrew people

abraham is the father of many nations through Jesus Christ who is the son of Abraham

“The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭1:1‬ ‭KJV‬‬

anyone who believes the gospel and gets baptized is a son of Abraham in Christ and heir according to the promise made to Abraham regarding all nations ,” all peoples and families of the earth “

“For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. ( the son of Abraham )

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
‭‭Galatians‬ ‭3:27-29‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Abram was made a promose for a single nation to be delivered from bondage Egypt threat was fulfilled and then God fave then a law and made a covenant with them and they broke it and were cursed as he told them would happen when they broke his covenant. You find that throughout the Old Testament

Abraham was the name God gave him when he made an everlasting covenant with him to be father of all nations of earth , you find that being fulfilled in the New Testament

The promise to Abram the Hebrew is the story of israel , and is an allegory like the nation to ishmael who was cast out of Abraham’s house in order that he not inherit anything from Abraham but the inheritance belonged only to Isaac

The promise to Abraham father of many nations in the same allegory is likened to Isaac who was the sole Hier of Abraham’s possessions even though ishmael was firstborn , he later when Isaac was offered , isn’t recognized by God as a child of Abraham Isaac is said to be the only son of Abraham though he was second born all of the inheritance was given to him and ishmael was cast out of his house not having any inheritance but a seperate blessing through hagars plight and supplication to God in the desert
Well, Abraham was also the father of Ishmael….brother from a different mother. Still family but… dysfunctional.

yep ishmael was according to Mans judgement , but what I was saying is when Isaac Was offered by Abraham God said

“And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time, and said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:

that in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.”( see Galatians chaoter 3)
‭‭Genesis‬ ‭22:15-18‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Because remember before this when Isaac was born second , ishmael the firstborn son with Hagar was cast out of aBrahams house and inheritance ( given his own seperate of a single nation )

“Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac.

And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight because of his son. And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called.

And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, because he is thy seed.”( Israel )
‭‭Genesis‬ ‭21:10-13‬ ‭KJV‬‬

“For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants;

the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Hagar.

For this Hagar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.

But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.

Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son( old covenant made at Sinai ) for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman. So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.”( the gospel the new covenant )
‭‭Galatians‬ ‭4:22, 24-26, 28, 30-31‬ ‭KJV‬‬
