    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???!!!
  • Irene123
    Melchizdek brought out bread and wine when he met Abraham (Gen. 14:18). His action was a prophetic foreshadowing of the memorials of the body and blood of Jesus in the last supper.
  • Irene123
    God had many 'manifestations' in the O.T. Melchisedec was one, the burning bush another, Jacob's wrestling partner, and many more. God later, in the N.T. manifested Himself as Jesus Christ.

    In verse 14 Abram wasted no time to go and get his nephew. He speaks the wisdom of God in verse 23
