Abraham ist als Stammvater Israels eine zentrale Figur des Tanachs bzw. des Alten Testaments. Genauso gilt er als Stammvater der Araber; von seinem Sohn Ismael soll der Prophet des Islam, Mohammed, abstammen. Abrahams Geschichte wird im biblischen Buch Genesis bzw. Bereschit erzählt. Danach gehört er zusammen mit seinem Sohn Isaak und seinem Enkel Jakob zu den Erzvätern, aus denen laut biblischer Überlieferung die Zwölf Stämme des Volkes Israel hervorgingen.

Da sich sowohl Judentum, Christentum als auch Islam auf Abraham als ihren Stammvater beziehen, bezeichnet man sie auch als die drei abrahamitischen Religionen.

„This is thy kindness which thou shalt show unto me; at every place whither we shall come, say of me: He is my brother.“

—  Abraham
Context: I thought: Surely the fear of God is not in this place; and they will slay me for my wife's sake. And moreover she is indeed my sister, the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and so she became my wife. And it came to pass, when God caused me to wander from my father's house, that I said unto her: This is thy kindness which thou shalt show unto me; at every place whither we shall come, say of me: He is my brother. To Abimelech in the wife-sister narrative of Genesis 20:11 - 23 (KJV)

„Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren.“

—  Abraham
Context: Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren. Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left. To his nephew Lot, as quoted in Genesis 13:8 (KJV)

„Oh, let not the LORD be angry, and I will speak yet but this once. Peradventure ten shall be found there?“

—  Abraham
Context: Wilt Thou indeed sweep away the righteous with the wicked? Peradventure there are fifty righteous within the city; wilt Thou indeed sweep away and not forgive the place for the fifty righteous that are therein? That be far from Thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked, that so the righteous should be as the wicked; that be far from Thee; shall not the Judge of all the earth do justly? … Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the LORD, who am but dust and ashes. Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous; wilt Thou destroy all the city for lack of five? … Oh, let not the LORD be angry, and I will speak yet but this once. Peradventure ten shall be found there? To the LORD regarding the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah, in Genesis 18:22 - 32 (KJV), after which, it is recorded that the LORD responds: I will not destroy it for ten's sake. <!-- And the LORD went his way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place. -->

„You are fifty years old and would worship a day old statue!“
