Medan in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE me'-dan (medhan, "strife"): One of the sons of Abraham by Keturah (Gen 25:2; 1 Ch 1:32).

Medan in Wikipedia According to the Bible, Medan (Hebrew: מְדָ֥ן "contention; to twist, conflict"); also spelt Madan[1] was the third son of Abraham, the patriarch of the Israelites, and Keturah whom he wed after the death of Sarah. [2][3] Medan had five brothers, Zimran, Jokshan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah.[4] Apparent and approximate emigration patters of Abrahamís children to Katurah, excepting those of whom insufficient is known to draw a conclusion. Josephus tells us that "Abraham contrived to settle them in colonies; and they took possession of Troglodytis and the country of Arabia the Happy, as far as it reaches to the Red Sea."[5] Abraham, in all probability, tried to keep them apart from Isaac to avoid conflict while fulfilling God's commission to spread out and inhabit the globe.[6][7][8] Little else is know about him. [9] There is no known connection to the Madan people of Iran and Iraq.
