Sort by:
Hagar: Sarah’s Egyptian maidservant. She became Abraham’s concubine due to Sarah’s childlessness at that point in time. Mother of Abraham’s eldest son, Ishmael. She and Ishmael were banished from Abraham’s household because of Ishmael’s potentially negative influence on Isaac. The midrash also identifies her as Keturah, the wife Abraham took after Sarah’s passing.
Ishmael was a wild man; banished from Abraham's home together with his mother Hagar. Years later, we find Ishmael accompanying Abraham to the Akeidah. After Sarah’s death, Abraham remarries Hagar. What's going on?
Rashi tells us that Keturah was one and the same as Hagar, whom Abraham had married more than 50 years prior.
