A request to wikipedia moderators[edit]

There are many topics on wikipedia which are shown on wikipedia as they belong to christianity only. Like if i search for Abraham, the search results show Abraham titled page with Christian Philosophy. The views of other religions are put in under topic titles such as Abraham in Islam, Abraham in Judaism or whatsoever. This was just an example. Here on wikipedia are many articles like this. I want all of them to be merged into one wikipedia page. Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Faisalwani (talkcontribs) 20:00, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Aramaean[edit]

Should it be mentioned that Passover prayer services in Reform Judaism idiotically claim that Abraham was an Aramaean? "My father was a fugitive Aramean. He went down to Egypt with meager numbers and sojourned there; but there he became a great and very populous nation" (Deuteronomy 26:5). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 181.88.177.153 (talk) 10:19, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

Isaiah 63 assertion[edit]

The article states, "Isaiah 63:16 similarly testifies of tension between the people of Judah and the returning post-Exilic Jews (the "gôlâ"), stating that God is the father of Israel and that Israel's history begins with the Exodus and not with Abraham." Unfortunately, that's not what that passage says. There's no reference to the Exodus. The reference to Abraham not knowing them is much more naturally understood to express the desertion the Israelites felt while in exile. I suggest that this assertion be dropped from this article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Revtshin (talkcontribs) 02:19, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

Abraham's Descendants by Keturah[edit]

The "Family Tree" section of this article is a great visual, but it's missing Abraham's descendants through Keturah, another wife he presumably took in his old age. See the "Later Years" heading directly above. This is probably worth including in the family tree, since one of the sons, Midian, plays an important role in the future of Israel (Zipporah, the wife of Moses, was a Midianite). See Exodus 2:15–22. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:306:CEF8:B6E0:4994:13F1:6238:EB97 (talk) 21:29, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
