1900 B.C = Jewish history started Abraham who was a descendant of Adam and Eve. He had a strong connection with the Lord where God selected him to become one of the Patriarchs of the Jewish faith and changed his name from Abram to Abraham. He had a wife and a son named Issac.

Sadly between 1500-1290 B.C, the Israelite's suffered exodus in Egypt. Suddenly Moses, the most important Hebrew Prophet, led the Israelite's within Egypt out; God instructed Moses to do so through a burning bush while he tended his sheep. This event was called the covenant which the Yahweh (God) formed at Mount Sinai. The Israelite's established themselves in Canaan which was the Promise Land God promised them. But instead of being free at last, They realized they weren't the only people in the promise land, so they fought for their land back.
