TERAH IN THE BOOK OF JOSHUA

In his final speech to the Israelite leaders assembled at Shechem
Shechem
, Joshua
Joshua
recounts the history of God's formation of the Israelite nation, beginning with " Terah
Terah
the father of Abraham
Abraham
and Nahor, lived beyond the Euphrates
Euphrates
River and worshiped other gods."

JEWISH TRADITION

WHEN TERAH BEGAT ABRAM

Genesis 11:26 states that Terah
Terah
lived 70 years, and he begat Abram, Nachor, and Haran. Rashi
Rashi
comments on the subsequent elaboration on the story of Abraham
Abraham
that Abraham
Abraham
was the gem of the chronology of Genesis 11 which the Torah wanted to focus on. In the Jewish tradition, Genesis (11:26) teaches that Terah
Terah
was 70 years old when he begat Abram. The Talmud says that Abraham
Abraham
was 52 years old at year 2000 AM ( Anno Mundi ), which means that he was born in the year 1948 AM. Rashi
Rashi
explains this based on Abram being born when Terah
Terah
was 70. While it is a given in Jewish tradition that Genesis (11:26) relates that Abram was born when Terach was 70, which is the basis of the current Jewish year, there is yet a question whether Abram was born first as listed, or perhaps last, and is listed first as the wisest similar to Shem, Ham, and Jafeth where Shem
Shem
was the youngest but wisest. Seder Olam Rabbah
Seder Olam Rabbah
holds that Abram was the eldest, but the Talmud leaves the above question open.

TERAH\'S OCCUPATION

According to rabbinical tradition Terah
Terah
was a wicked (Numbers Rabbah 19:1; 19:33), idolatrous priest ( Midrash HaGadol on Genesis 11:28) who manufactured idols (Eliyahu Rabbah 6, and Eliyahu Zuta 25). Abram, in opposition to his father’s idol shop, smashed his father’s idols and chased customers away. Terah
Terah
then brought his unruly son before Nimrod, who threw him into a fiery furnace, yet Abram miraculously escaped ( Genesis Rabba 38:13). The Zohar
Zohar
says that when God
God
saved Abram from the furnace, Terah
Terah
repented ( Zohar
Zohar
Genesis 1:77b) and Rabbi Abba B. Kahana said that God
God
assured Abram that his father Terah
Terah
had a portion in the World to Come ( Genesis Rabbah 30:4; 30:12).

Rabbi Hiyya relates this account in Genesis Rabba : Terah
Terah
left Abram to mind the store while he departed. A woman came with a plateful of flour and asked Abram to offer it to the idols. Abram then took a stick, broke the idols, and put the stick in the largest idol’s hand. When Terah
Terah
returned, he demanded that Abram explain what he'd done. Abram told his father that the idols fought among themselves and the largest broke the others with the stick. “Why do you make sport of me?” Terah
Terah
cried, “Do they have any knowledge?” Abram replied, “Listen to what you are saying!”

LEADER OF THE JOURNEY

Terah
Terah
is identified as the person who arranged and led the family to embark on a mysterious journey to Canaan. It is shrouded in mystery to Jewish scholars as to why Terah
Terah
began the journey and as to why the journey ended prematurely. It is suggested that he was a man in search of a greater truth that could possibly be found in the familiar land of Canaan, and that it was Abram who picked up the torch to continue his father's quest, that Terah
Terah
himself was unable to achieve.

WHEN ABRAM LEAVES HARAN

In Jewish tradition Abram left Haran before Terah
Terah
died as an expression that he would not be remiss in the Mitzvah , of honoring a parent, by leaving his aging father behind. The significance of Terah not reaching Canaan, was a reflection of his character, a man who was unable to go “all the way”. Though on a journey in the right direction, Terah
Terah
fell short at arriving to the divine destination — in contrast to Abram, who did follow through and achieved the divine goal, and was not bound by his father’s idolatrous past. Abram's following God’s command to leave his father, thus absolved him from the Mitzvah of honoring parents, and as Abraham, he would go on to create a new lineage distinct from his ancestors.

SAMARITAN TRADITION

In the Samaritan Pentateuch
Samaritan Pentateuch
Terah
Terah
dies aged 145 years and Abram leaves Haran after his death.

CHRISTIAN TRADITION

In the Christian
Christian
tradition Abram left Haran after Terah
Terah
died. The Christian
Christian
views of the time of Terah
Terah
come from a passage in the New Testament at Acts 7:2–4 where Stephen said some things that contrast with Jewish Rabbinical views. He said that God
God
appeared to Abraham
Abraham
in Mesopotamia, and directed him to leave the Chaldeans—whereas most Rabbinical commentators see Terah
Terah
as being the one who directed the family to leave Ur Kasdim
Ur Kasdim
from Genesis 11:31: " Terah
Terah
took his son Abram, his daughter-in-law Sarai (his son Abram's wife), and his grandson Lot (his son Haran's child) and left Ur of the Chaldeans to go to the land of Canaan." Stephen asserts that Abram left Haran after Terah
Terah
died.

ISLAMIC TRADITION

In some Islamic sects, Abraham's father is believed to have been a disbelieving man, due to his refusal to listen to the constant advice of his son. In fact, the earliest story involving Abraham
Abraham
in the Quran is his discussion with his ab (Arabic : أَب‎, which can mean 'father'). The name given for this man in the Qur'an is 'Āzar' (Arabic : ءازَرُ‎), though Arab genealogists related the name of Abraham's father as 'Ṫāraḥ' (Arabic : تَارَح‎).

ABRAHAM\'S ADVICE

As a father, Azar required his son's most sincere advice. Ibrahim, after receiving his first revelations from Allah
Allah
, invited his father to the way of Islam
Islam
. Abraham
Abraham
explained to him the faults of idolatry , and why he was wrong to worship objects which could neither hear nor see. From the Quran
Quran
74/6, "And , when Abraham
Abraham
said to his ab Azar: Do you take idols as deities? Indeed, I see you and your people to be in manifest error." Abraham
Abraham
told his father that he had indeed received revelations from God
God
, knowledge which his father did not possess, and told him that belief in Allah
Allah
would grant him immense rewards in both this life and the hereafter . Abraham
Abraham
concluded his preaching by warning Azar of the grave punishment he would face if he did not mend his ways. When Abraham
Abraham
offered his father the guidance and advice of Allah, he rejected it, and threatened to stone him to death. Abraham
Abraham
prayed for his father to be forgiven by God, and although he continued to seek forgiveness, it was only because of a promise that he had made earlier to him. When it became clear that Azar's unrelenting hatred towards monotheism would never be fought, Abraham
Abraham
dissociated himself from him.

WRECKAGE OF THE IDOLS

The Quran
Quran
states that the people of Abraham
Abraham
were idolaters . When Abraham
Abraham
had become forty, he decided to finally teach his community a lesson. He said to himself that he had a plan for their idols, whilst they would be gone away. The Qur'an goes on to narrate that Abraham subsequently broke the idols, all except the largest, which he kept intact. When the people returned, they began questioning each other over the wreckage, until some of the people remembered that the youth, Abraham, had spoken of the idols earlier. When Abraham
Abraham
arrived, the people immediately began to question him, asking him whether he had anything to do with the broken idols. Abraham
Abraham
then, in a clever taunt, asked the people as to why they do not ask the largest of the idols, which, they believed, could indeed hear and speak. The people of Abraham
Abraham
were then confounded with shame, and admitted that the idols were incapable of anything.

ABRAHAM IS THROWN INTO THE FIRE

After the incident of the idol wreckage, the people of Abraham, while having admitted their fault, are said to have ignored Abraham's warning and instead retaliated by throwing him into a fire and exclaiming "protect your gods". Although the natural nature of fire is one of intense heat, God
God
commanded the flame to be cool and peaceful for Abraham. Abraham, as a result, remained unhurt both physically and spiritually, having survived the fire of persecution. The people continued to taunt and persecute him, but to no avail, as the Qur'an says that it was they "that lost most". this means that abraham came out unharmed and outstanded people.

SHI\'ITE VIEW

Shi\'ite Muslims believe that Azar was Abraham's uncle, not his biological father. The Quran
Quran
mentions that the sons of Ya‘qūb (Arabic : يَـعـقُـوب‎, Jacob) referred to his uncle Ismā‘īl (Arabic : إِسـمَـاعِـيـل‎, Ishmael), father Is-ḥāq (Arabic : إِسـحَـاق‎, Isaac) and grandfather Ibrāhīm (Arabic : إِبـرَاهِـيـم‎, Abraham) as his ābā’ (Arabic : آبَـاء‎):

"Were you there to see when death came upon Ya'qub? When he said to his sons, "What will you worship after I am gone?" they replied, "We shall worship your God
God
and the God
God
of your aba’, Ibrahim, Isma'il, and Is-haq, one single God: we devote ourselves to Him.""

Therefore, the singular word ab does not always mean progenitor, and can be used for an adopter, uncle, step-father, or caretaker, unlike the word wālid (Arabic : وَالِـد‎, progenitor). Nevertheless, even if the name of Abraham's biological father was not 'Āzar' but 'Ṫāraḥ', he was a polytheist, according to the Book of Joshua, thus matching the Quran's description of Azar, in this case.
