Terah

Additional Links

TERAH . The father of Abraham, Nahor, and Haran ( Gen 11:24-32 , 1 Chronicles 1:25 , Luke 3:34 ). Along with his three sons he is said to have migrated from Ur of the Chaldees to Haran, where he died. In Joshua 24:2 it is said that he ‘served other gods’ a statement which gave rise to some fanciful Jewish haggâdôth about Terah as a maker of idols. 2 . A station of the Israelites ( Numbers 33:27-28 ).
