Then the LORD appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.” And there he built an altar to the LORD who had appeared to him. (Gen 12:7)

Shechem is the first place where Abraham built an altar to the LORD. Shechem is mentioned many times in the bible:

  1. The Lord appeared to Abraham and said that that land will be given to his descendants (Genesis 12:1-7).
  2. Jacob later settled near Shechem after leaving his father-in-law Laban in Padan Aram (Genesis 33:18).
  3. Simeon and Levi killed all the males of Shechem after the rape of their sister Dinah (Genesis 34).
