In you #12 you state: a few interpreters have additionally tried to identify Abraham's birthplace with Chaldia [northeast Anatolia (modern Turkey)], a distinct region in Asia Minor on the Black Sea
... Is your reference to the supposed worship of the Urartian god Khaldi [Chaldi]?
I see in the Jewish Encyclopedia that the city of Haran is believed by some to have been the first city built following the flood... would either of you know a source for this belief - who believes such a thing?
I am working on a page for my Bible Mysteries web site - which I have woefully neglected for some time due to health problems and other such frustrations -- a page on the mystery of Haran and why it became such a hub for the Terah/Abrahamic clan. Perhaps it is not a mystery that can be cracked in depth... but it is worth looking into.
