Genesis 14

Genesis
GenesisSteve Gregg

In Genesis 14, a war erupted between four kings and five kings in the region of the Dead Sea, including the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. During the war, Abram’s nephew, Lot, was taken captive, prompting Abram to mobilize his own servants to pursue and defeat the captors. Through the use of the term "brother" to refer to relatives like Lot, the author delves into the significance of Melchizedek; recognized as a spiritual authority, he is introduced as the king of Salem and a priest of God Most High. By connecting Melchizedek to the Messianic line, the author establishes a connection between Melchizedek and Jesus, highlighting Jesus' unique contributions to the theology of Christianity.
