The first recorded war in the Bible. Abram could have said to himself "well it serves Lot right. Let him take care of himself'. But no.
V. 14 Though Lot was Abram's nephew, he is called "his brother". How humbled Lot must have been when he thought of the love of his uncle. Let still had Sodom in his heart, for when he was rescued, he went right back and lived there! What a putt the world has for us, if we get our eyes off the Lord!
V. 18-24 Melchizedek (pronounced Mel-diz-e-deck) is a beautiful type of Christ as Priest and King. Read of him in Heb. 6:2020Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec. (Hebrews 6:20) and 7:23-24. Christ in the millennium (see chart) will be both Priest and King.
