Ishmael: Abraham’s Half Egyptian Son With Hagar

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] We are use to hearing the story of Abraham and Isaac, but we often forget about Abraham's oldest son Ishmael. Throughout the Bible, the Ishmaelites (Ishmeelites) play an important role in many of the events that take place. Let's start by taking  a look at the circumstances surrounding the birth of Ishmael.

Kedar: The “Dark Skinned” Grandson of Abraham

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] Kedar was Abraham's grandson, and the second son of Ishmael (Genesis 25:13). He also founded a city that is mentioned quite a few times in scripture.
