Abraham was born in the year 2166 B.C. He was the descendant of Shem who was one of the sons of Noah (Gen 11:26-28). He was born in Ur which was a city of Mesopotamia. The name Abram means “exalted father.” In a later date, God changed his name to Abraham which henceforth means “father of many nations” (Gen. 17:5) God called Abraham to leave Ur and to proceed to Canaan, the Promised Land (Acts 7:2-3) Abraham became the father of faith (Rm 4:16); Gal 3:7,29)
