Jewish History: Biblical History: The First Monotheist:
Was Abraham the first monotheist?
Abraham was the first Jew (or more precisely: the
first Hebrew), but he wasn't the first monotheist.
Some of the leaders of the generations between
Adam and Terach were undoubtedly pagans, but some
of them, especially Adam and Noah, were believers
in the One and Only G-d. Noah's immediate ancestors
(Chanoch, Mesushelach, Lemech) were also righteous,
but they died before the Flood, so only Noah and
his immediate family were saved.
