The history of the Jewish people begins in Bronze Age times in the Middle East when God promised a nomad leader called Abram that he would be the father of a great people if he did as God told him.
Jews regard Abraham (as he was later called) as the first Patriarch of the Jewish people. He was the first person to teach the idea that there was only one God; before then, people believed in many gods.
