Discussion for Genesis 14

  • A disciple
    Dear BG; You wrote, "You can clearly see Abram's growing dependence upon God to throughout his life. He wasn't perfect but he was learning to trust the Lord more and more." While it is so popular to take up this kind of talk, and apologizing to the ungodly for the Saints; it does not describe Abram! Genesis 6:3 Excusing one's self for failure because of the weakness of the flesh is disobedience!
  • A disciple
    What a world of danger and disaster do the ungodly have to endure! Just a glimpse into the kind of world going on all around "God's Friend Abram;" in which his nephew Lot was accidentally caught up in, because he was not as keen on this life of a pilgrim like his uncle was determined to live. Abram and his 318 men chased and destroyed five Nations' armies, and delivered the captives and the spoil!

    Day 5 of the KingJamesBibleonline reading the Bible through in one year. Had to play a little "catch up" but that is ok. You can clearly see Abram's growing dependence upon God to throughout his life. He wasn't perfect but he was learning to trust the Lord more and more.

    Verse 14: Abraham took great measures to go rescue his nephew Lot. Lot chose a dangerous place to live, but Abraham loved Lot and wanted to do all he could to save him.

    To Victor on Melchisedec/Jesus - Melchisedec was a theophany of God/Jesus. Jesus is God's N.T. name, just as Jehovah was His O.T. name. I think it's Jn. 1:14 that says God was manifest in the flesh, and the angel in Lk. 2 to Mary said His name was to be Jesus.
  • Victor
    ......but (!!!!) was Melchisedec...an appearance of Jesus taking place in the Old Testament???!!!
