Abraham is a pivotal figure in the Bible. He is the father of many peoples, the icon of faith, and a sent away son to whom God delivered a kingdom.
The Bible designates Abraham a Hebrew. The English word Hebrew comes
from the ancient word Ha-biru/Ha-piru which referred to a caste of
ruler-priests who regarded the Sun as the emblem of the Creator. They
were sometimes called O-piru. Here the O is a solar symbol (lexeme). The
east-facing temple was termed O-piru, meaning "Sun House" or "House of
the Sun" and the priests at the water shrines were called W'pr.
Another solar symbol among Abraham's ancestors is the Y, which
designated a ruler. That is why many of the Habiru in the Bible have
names that begin with Y, something that is more evidence in the Hebrew
Bible. Some examples are: Yaqtan (Joktan), Yacob (Jacob), Yistzak
(Isaac),Yosef (Joseph) Yetro (Jethro), Yishai (Jesse), and Yeshua
(Joshua/Jesus). The Y was a solar cradle that indicated the ruler-priest, or the Habiru. The ruler was appointed by the overshadowing of the Sun.
Sargon I is said to have been of a virgin queen who was overshadowed by
the High God. He was born in an O-piru. His home city was called
Azu-piranu, meaning Anu House of God (The Creator was Azu in Akkadian,
Asa in Chadic, Asha in Kushitic, Ashai in Hebrew; a Jerusalem priest was
named Amashai in Neh. 11:13).
Here is a sign post pointing to the origins of Messianic expectation, or
the Proto-Gospel, concerning the divine appointment of a virgin who is
to bring forth the "seed" of God (Gen. 3:15). We recall the angel
Gabriel's reply to Mary's question, "How shall this be, seeing I know
not a man?" Gabriel explained, "The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and
the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore the Holy One
which shall be born of thee shall be called the "Son of God." (Luke
The Habiru practiced endogamy. That is, they married only with other
Habiru. The marriage and ascendancy pattern of their rulers is
distinctive. It involved two wives. The first was a half-sister bride,
taken in the man's youth. The second was a patrilineal cousin or niece,
taken shortly before the son's rise to power. The first born son of the
half-sister wife ascended to the throne of his father. So Isaac was heir
to Abraham's territory which extended between Hebron and Beersheba. The
first born son of the cousin bride named her son after her father
because that son would serve as a Minister in the territory of his

rulers were heirs of the Nilo-Saharan rulers who venerated cows.
Elements of their religious beliefs and practices were borrowed by the
ancient Egyptians. The image (right) of Hathor-Meri, the mother of
Horus, shows her overshadowed by the Sun. The Sun rests in the horns of a
cow, a solar cradle (Y). The cow was Hathor's animal totem and she is
shown at Nile shrines holding her child in a stable or manger.
The Horites believed that Horus was born at the winter solstice
(December 24). The infant grew in stature from that day, even as from
that day forward the Sun grows in strength as the days lengthen. The
ancient Egyptian ritual involved placing a male baby before the image of
Hathor-Meri and the priests placed gifts before the "divine son."
Abraham's ruler-priest ancestors are called "Horites" (Horim). Horite
kings are listed in Genesis 4, 5,11 and 36. Apparently, they had a
distinctive reddish (ruddy) skin tone. They are called Horites because
they were devotees of Horus, who was regarded as the "son" of the
Creator. Prayers were offered to Horus and his Father, whose emblem was
the Sun. The Horite priests greeted the rising sun with prayers and
watched as it expanded across the horizon. We find the lexeme biru in the Arabic yakburu means “he is getting big” and with the intensive active prefix: yukabbiru means "he is enlarging."
The oldest known center of Horite worship is Nekhen
(Hierakonpolis) in Sudan. Votive offerings at the Nekhen temple were
ten times larger than the normal mace heads and bowls found elsewhere,
suggesting that this was a very prestigious shrine. Horite priests
placed invocations to Horus at the summit of the fortress as the sun
rose. This is the origin of the morning ritual of devout Hindus
(Agnihotra) and the Jewish Sun Blessing ritual (Birkat Hachama) that is
performed every 28 years.
