The primeval history, the name given by biblical scholars to the first eleven chapters of the Book of Genesis, is a story of the first years of the world's existence.It tells how God creates the world and all its beings and places the first man and woman (Adam and Eve) in his Garden of Eden, how the first couple are expelled from God's presence, of the first murder which follows, and God's decision to destroy the world and save only the righteous Noah and his sons; a new humanity then descends from these sons and spreads throughout the world, but although the new world is as sinful as the old God has resolved never again to destroy the world by flood, and the history ends with Terah, the father of Abraham, from whom will descend God's chosen people.
Arpachshad (Hebrew: אַרְפַּכְשַׁד – ʾArpaḵšaḏ, in pausa אַרְפַּכְשָׁד – ʾArpaḵšāḏ; Greek: Ἀρφαξάδ – Arphaxád), alternatively spelled Arphaxad or Arphacsad, is one of the postdiluvian men in the Shem–Terah genealogy.

Milcah was the daughter of Haran and the wife of Nahor in Genesis. Milcah was a woman of ancient Mesopotamia and an ancestor of the patriarch Jacob. Milcah was born to Haran, who had another daughter, Iscah. This Haran seemed to be different from Haran, Abraham's brother, who had a son, Lot. Haran, Abraham's brother, died in Ur before his father Terah. Milcah married Nahor, another of Abraham’s brothers. There is a prevalent assumption that the two men with the name Haran are indeed one person. If that is true, then Milcah married to her uncle. Although Leviticus would later outlaw marriages between aunt and nephew, it did not rule out marriage between uncle and niece. The Talmud approved of a man who married his sister’s daughter. And in the Talmud, Rabbi Isaac equates Milcah’s sister Iscah with Sarah, who married Abraham, who was also their uncle. Thus, according to Rabbi Isaac, the two sisters, Milcah and Iscah, married the two brothers, Nahor and Abraham.
Anno Mundi, abbreviated as AM or A.M., or Year After Creation, refers to a Calendar era based on the biblical creation of the world. Numerous efforts have been made to determine the biblical date of Creation, yielding varying results. Besides differences in interpretation, which version of the Bible is being referenced also impacts on the result. Two dominant dates for creation using such models exist. These were calculated from the genealogies in two versions of the Bible, with most of the difference arising from two versions of the Book of Genesis. Patriarchs from Adam to Terah, the father of Abraham, are said to be older by as much as 100 years or more when they begat their named son in the Greek Christian Septuagint than they were in the Latin Christian Vulgate or the Hebrew Jewish Tanakh. The net difference between the two major genealogies of Genesis was 1466 years, which is virtually all of the 1500-year difference between 5500 BC and 4000 BC. ⁕The older dates about 5500 BC are based on the Greek Septuagint. The Byzantine calendar has been in general use at one time in the Christian Orthodox Churches and several Eastern European countries.
Aram-Naharaim is a region that is mentioned five times in the Hebrew Bible or Old Testament. It is commonly identified with Nahrima mentioned in three tablets of the Amarna correspondence as a geographical description of the kingdom of Mitanni. In Genesis, it is used somewhat interchangeably with the names Paddan Aram and Haran to denote the place where Abraham stayed briefly with his father Terah's family after leaving Ur of the Chaldees, while en route to Canaan, and the place to which later patriarchs obtained wives, rather than marry daughters of Canaan. Paddan Aram refers to the part of Aram-Naharaim along the upper Euphrates, while Haran is mainly identified with the ancient city of Harran on the Balikh River. According to one rabbinical Jewish tradition, the birthplace of Abraham was also situated in Aram-Naharaim.
Haran or Aran is a man in the Book of Genesis in the Hebrew Bible. He died in Ur of the Chaldees, was a son of Terah, and brother of Abraham. Through his son Lot, Haran was the ancestor of the Moabites and Ammonites, and through his daughter Milcah he was ancestral to the Aramaeans and the Israelites. Jesus Christ is counted among his descendants.
