I've always wondered how the contracts or obligations were written? If slav
provided a child fathered by the slave owner, was this consentual or obligatory? Were there special or customary rights to be provided for the children? In the sotry of Abraham and Sarah, Sarah provided the Egyptian slave named Hagar to provide a son for Abraham. This resulted in the birth of Ishmael. After Sarah gave birth to Isaac, Sarah demanded Abraham to kick Hagar and Ishmael out of the house and cast them out to the desert. He fed them bread and water, then sent them along their way. That's wild.
What's wild is that, that far back in history, there was a person named SARAH and a person named HAGAR. How is that possible?
I often wonder was there a Lewis living next door to Abraham?
the names are what make it so hard to buy into...
I suppose most of those names are modern-translations into the closest name of the time to something we know so we read Sarah instead of Shara^seo or something,.. But still, i would prefer the names to be as close to what they were as possible.
