"In order to gather together scattered humanity God calls Abram from his country, his kindred and his father’s house, and makes him Abraham, that is, ‘the father of a multitude of nations’. ‘In you all the nations of the earth shall be blessed.’"
Catechism of the Catholic Church 59

"After the patriarchs, God formed Israel as his people by freeing them from slavery in Egypt. He established with them the covenant of Mount Sinai and, through Moses, gave them his law so that they would recognise him and serve him as the one living and true God, the provident Father and just judge, and so that they would look for the promised Saviour."
Catechism of the Catholic Church 62
