75. Who was Korah's father?
Esau was Korah's father.
This is so important that it is repeated three times in Genesis 36.And Aholibamah bare Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah: these are the sons of Esau, which were born unto him in the land of Canaan. Genesis 36:5And 1 Chronicles agrees, saying:
Eliphaz was Korah's father.
Genesis 36 also says that Eliphaz was Korah's father.These were dukes of the sons of Esau: the sons of Eliphaz the firstborn son of Esau; duke Teman, duke Omar, duke Zepho, duke Kenaz, Duke Korah, duke Gatam, and duke Amalek: these are the dukes that came of Eliphaz in the land of Edom; these were the sons of Adah. Genesis 36:15-16
To avoid the contradiction, apologists claim that there were two Korahs, one a son and the other a grandson of Esau.
But doesn't work since since Korah is not included among the sons of Eliphaz listed in 1 Chronicles.
The sons of Eliphaz; Teman, and Omar, Zephi, and Gatam, Kenaz, and Timna, and Amalek. 1 Chronicles 1:36
