Was Abraham Jewish?

Did you know that Abraham wasn’t Jewish? He was from Ur, a city in modern-day Iraq. When Yahweh, the God of the Bible, called him, in faith, he left his family and all their idols and followed God. God called him Abraham – father of many nations. From him came Ishmael – father of the Arabs, and Issac – father of the Jews. God made a promise to Abraham – “The whole land of Canaan, where you now reside as a foreigner, I will give as an everlasting possession to you and your descendants after you; and I will be their God.” (Genesis 17:8). But there would be a special descendant, “through (who) all nations on earth will be blessed” (Genesis 22:18). And that person is Jesus (Galatians 3:16). “In Jesus there is no division into Jew and non-Jew, slave and free, male and female.” He makes us one, and thereby all “Abraham’s descendants, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:28-29).
