The following video investigates the birthplace of Abraham. History books tell us that Abraham was from Ur in Sumer, However the Bible conveys a different story. A number of Historians; Josephus, Islamic tradition, and Jewish authorities like Maimonides all concur that Ur Kaśdim (Ur of the Chaldeans) was in Northern Mesopotamia — now southeastern Turkey (identified with Ur Fa).



----------
Behold the land of the Chaldeans; this people was not, till the Assyrian founded it for them that dwell in the wilderness: they set up the towers thereof, they raised up the palaces thereof; and he brought it to ruin.
- Isaiah 23:13
