Three major faith traditions look to Abraham as one of their fathers. He was known to be a friend of God. But, the Scriptures tell us that there was nothing uniquely special about him. He was a simple tribesman who became the father of a great nation. What made him unique was nothing within him. It was the promises of God realized by faith. What made him unique was his encounter with the Most High God.
