Response to Ana Dear Ana,

Yes while it's true that there were many spiritual giants before Avrohom, they were insular, their effect on their surrounding negligible. The best proof is Noah who heroically and single handedly saved the world but only by saving his own family while letting everyone else drown. Avrohom, however, challenged and inspired the masses to become aware of the truth and reality of G-d.

All the best,
Ben Tzion Krasnianski Reply
