Lot in the Middle
Lot’s decision to take advantage of Abram’s brotherly kindness begins to have immediate ramifications. In what is the first recorded account of combat in the Bible and the only recorded instance of warfare that involved Abram, the fourteenth chapter opens with a battle of nine armies. This passage reads more like a history book and it’s helpful to come at it as such by making a series of observations. Abram readies himself and his men to rescue one of his own. In the attempt to redeem Lot and his household, Abram successfully routes this foreign invasion. God was clearly on his side, how is that true for us?

About the series
The Book of Genesis is the starting point of God’s covenant with His people. This book gives us the historical sketch of the creation, fall, and redemption of the world. Genesis is also a perfect litmus test to gauge whether or not a person fully trusts in the authority, sufficiency, and inerrancy of Scripture.
