THE HOLIESTTHE HOLIEST BOOK, HOLIEST TWO
"And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran." (Genesis 11:26)
"Now these are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot." (Genesis 11:27)
<2>Repetition of the generations of Terah show their importance. He had the same number of children as Noah.
"And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees." (Genesis 11:28)
<3>They were living in Ur in Chaldees.
<4>Abram was leading a regular life. Also the name Sarai is very similar to the Sanskrit names Sarvati and Saradamoni.
"But Sarai was barren; she had no child." (Genesis 11:30)
<5>Even after Abram found out she was barren, he continued their marriage.
"And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son's son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram's wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came into Haran, and dwelt there." (Genesis 11:31)
<6>The similarity of the name of Haran, the son of Terah, with the place they went to dwell in, shows the desire of Terah toward having the place Haran. It also shows the name of a place is used as the name of a person!
"And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years:and Terah died in Haran." (Genesis 11:32)
ELECTED ONES (HEBREWS)
"Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:" (Genesis 12:1)
<7>With the process of evolution and many reincarnations of humans, God was able to select some of those who had reached a higher level of consciousness as Elected Ones. Abram was the first Selected One and was given the instructions of how to start his mission. <8>Although he was called A-bram* ("not a Brahmin"), God chose him. God is not a respecter of man-made titles, but the fullness of the Heart. Abram was a true Brahmin!
"And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:" (Genesis 12:2)
<9>Abram not only had been chosen for starting the great mission, but he would be a blessing for all whenever he was reincarnated in the future. <10>There was also a promise that if the commandment of leaving his family and going where the Lord wanted was followed, there would be a "great nation" from him, who are the Elected Ones.
"And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee:and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed." (Genesis 12:3)
<11>Through his children (who would cover most of the world) and his nation (Elected Ones), the whole earth would be blessed. Also he would be born in so many different parts of the world and they all would be blessed through him.
