February 18, 2024: Genesis 13:1-14:16 Abram & Lot Separate | The Battle of the Kings

February 18, 2024 | Genesis 13:1-14:16 Abram and Lot Split | The War of Northern Aggression. Abram and Lot need to spread their herds out and Abram gives his nephew Lot the first choice. Lot chooses the rich lands of the Jordan Valley and the close proximity to Sodom and Gomorrah. Giving Lot first choice was an act of faith, and God speaks to Abram showing him the vastness of his inheritance. Next, powerful kings attack giants, large people groups south of the Salt Sea, and finally five kings of city-states including Sodom and Gomorrah, pillaging everything from their victories, taking the inhabitants, including Lot, as the spoils. Abram and his allies doggedly pursue the victors, crushing them and recovering all.
