Terah’s family tree

Sarai (later Sarah) is Terah’s daughter by his second wife. Abram (later Abraham) marries his half sister Sarai. Abram’s second son Isaac marries his uncle’s granddaughter Rebekah. Jacob marries Rebekah’s nieces Leah and Rachal and, together with their handmaidens Zilpah and Bilhah, fathers the twelve tribes of Israel. Jacob’s brother Esau is father to the Edomites. Abram’s nephew Lot has two sons by incest: Moab, the father of the Moabites, and Benammi, the father of the Ammonites. The Edomites, Moabites and Ammonites become adversaries of the Israelites, but when the ‘king of the north’ is moving south invading countries, Edom, Moab and Ammon are spared (see ‘End Times’. These are modern day Jordan. When Jesus is foretelling the signs of the ‘end times’, he says that all Judea must flee to the mountains, which some scholars say is in Jordan.
