2 : The Abraham Years
Was Abraham a nomad or a wealthy caravaneer? This was the burning question among Bible scholars 20 years ago. Abraham's journey from Ur in Mesopotamia to the land of Canaan (Genesis chapters 11 and 12) was confidently dated to 2000 BC.
Today, some scholars are asking a different question Was Abraham, father of the Hebrew people, an historical figure at all? Perhaps the answer to this and many other questions lies in Western Syria where Italian archaeologists have discovered clay tablets in a language which is the direct ancestor of Biblical Hebrew and full of Biblical names-used over 1,000 years before they appear in the Bible!
