Israel National News is reporting that the site of Mamre near Hebron has been visited recently and may be opened soon. The site is mentioned three times in Genesis, in chapters 13, 14, and 18. This is where Abraham settled after separating from his nephew Lot, where he built an altar to God, and where God sent him three angels to inform him that his son Isaac would be born the following year. It was also here that Abraham established the first Hebrew army, for the purpose of rescuing Lot, who had been kidnapped by the Four Kings during their war against the Five Kings as described in Genesis.
