A map showing the regions of the Bible's world thought to have descendants of Noah's sons. The descendants of Eber (except for Joktan) are shown in green.
According to the Bible, Eber was an ancestor of Jesus and Abraham. He was the son of Salah and the father of two sons, Peleg and Joktan. Jesus and Abraham came through Peleg's line. Some people think the word Hebrew comes from his name.
