Sort by:
Ishmael: (1727-1590 BCE) Son of Abraham and Hagar. Banished together with his mother from Abraham’s household because of his potentially negatively influence on Isaac. Though a rogue in his younger years, he eventually repented. Ancestor of Arabic nations.
Underlying the tension was the question of succession: which of Abraham’s two children would be the one chosen to carry on his legacy.
