    I’m curious if this resonates with any of the fundies? There’s some good link action below. I have a different interpretation than given below.

    Let ‘er rip .

    There is a medrash for each indicating that he ran after an animal

    Avraham ran after a calf and discovered the Cave of Machpela
    Genesis 18:7
    Genesis 18:7
    Genesis 18:7

    Moshe ran after a sheep
    Shemot Rabbah 2

    Even moreso, according to this translation, Moshe was "tested" in terms of this sheep Why did God choose Moshe? and Avraham was tested repeatedly.

    I know that Moshe is connected to certain earlier biblical personages but are there commentaries which tie him specifically to Avraham?
