Part 34: Abram Among the Kings

Todd Pruitt |Series: Genesis |Genesis 14:1-24

“Abraham continues to face conflicts and temptations that test his faith in God’s promises for the land. Abraham’s leadership in this scene signifies a much different Abraham from the cowardly man who endangered his wife just two scenes previously. His loyal defense of his foolish nephew reveals the depth of his honorable brotherly love. His refusal to accept the plunder from the king of Sodom also demonstrates his continuing reliance on God – and not the spoils of war – to provide the blessing.” – Bruce Waltke, Genesis: A New Commentary (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2001) p. 225
