Genesis Chapter 14 Summary
Genesis Chapter 14 Summary outlines some very informative history and an appearance by a great King.
This chapter begins with four kings war against five kings who were ruling the plains of Jordan. They all went into battle and the four kings conquered Sodom and Gomorrah, taking all the goods and people.
The bad news for the four kings is that Abram’s nephew, Lot, was among them. When the news reached Abram, he armed his men to go get his nephew.
Abram is identified as a Hebrew in this chapter and he goes to battle with just 300 servants of his against 4 kings and recovers Lot and the citizens of Sodom and Gomorrah.
This is where the story gets interesting. In his triumphant return, he is met by one Melchizedek, who is the King of Salem. King Melchizedek, also a High Priest, brought bread and wine, which is a key symbol in the Christian world, and King Melchizedek blessed Abram by the Most High God.
