Finding the unknown site where Abraham met the Trinity

by Steve Ray on May 2, 2014

Remember in Genesis 18 when the three angels came to visit Abraham? We are told in the first verse that it was the Lord that came to visit him. Christian tradition has seen these three messengers as being the Trinity coming down to visit Abraham and to judge Sodom and Gomorrah. That took place 4000 years ago. Where is that place?

It is relatively unknown. Most of the locals did not even know what we were looking for. Because no one knew where it was. But we finally located it in a plot of land with a fence around it just north of Hebron.

Because it was Friday, the holy day for Muslims, it was closed. But I was able to climb over the fence and get inside to take some pictures. It was VERY exciting to find this ancient site.

There are ruins of an enclosing wall built by King Herod 2000 years ago and also the ruins and remains of a church built by Constantine in the 4th century commemorating the place where Abraham pitched his tent.

We will be back in June to film here for our upcoming movie “Abraham, Father of Faith & Works.” You will get the whole story when the documentary is released for Christmas this year.
