Abraham is a 1994 television movie produced by Five Mile River Films based on the life of the Biblical patriarch Abraham. It was shot in Ouarzazate, Morocco.


Abram lives in Harran, a rich city. His wife Sarah (Barbara Hershey) is childless, and their only heir is Eliezer of Damascus. One day he hears the voice of God, who says that he must leave Haran and travel to an unknown land. God promises to make a great nation from him and renames him Abraham. The pattern for the plot is the Genesis chapters 11-25.
