  19. 19. 17. How did Abram learn of his nephew’s capture (14:13)? 13 Then one who had escaped came and told Abram the Hebrew, for he dwelt by the terebinth trees of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol and brother of Aner; and they were allies with Abram.
  20. 20. 18. Why was Abram referred to as “the Hebrew” (14:13; 10:25; 11:14-16)? 13 Then one who had escaped came and told Abram the Hebrew… 10:25 To Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan.
  21. 21. 19. Upon learning the news, what were Abram’s options (14:14)? 14 Now when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his three hundred and eighteen trained servants who were born in his own house, and went in pursuit as far as Dan.

  26. 26. 24. What two kings are mentioned (14:17-18)? 17 And the king of Sodom went out to meet him at the Valley of Shaveh (that is, the King’s Valley), after his return from the defeat of Chedorlaomer and the kings who were with him. 18 Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of God Most High.
  27. 27. 25. Who is Melchizedek (14:17)? 18 Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of God Most High. Psalm 110:4 “after the order of Melchizedek” Hebrews 6:20 “Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.” (cf. Heb. 7:23-24)
  28. 28. 1 For this Melchizedek… Hebrews 7:1–22 Hebrews 6:19–20 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, 20 where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.
  29. 29. 1 For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him, 2 to whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all, first being translated “king of righteousness,” and then also king of Salem, meaning “king of peace,” 3 without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, remains a priest continually. 4 Now consider how great this man was, to whom even the patriarch Abraham gave a tenth of the spoils. Hebrews 7:1–22
  30. 30. 26. What is the significance of Melchizedek bringing “bread and the wine” to Abram (14:18)? 18 Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of God Most High.

  32. 32. 28. What new name for God did Melchizedek use (14:19-20)? 19 And he blessed him and said: “Blessed be Abram of God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth; 20 And blessed be God Most High, Who has delivered your enemies into your hand.” And he gave him a tithe of all.

  34. 34. 30. What did the king of Sodom propose to Abram (14:21)? 21 Now the king of Sodom said to Abram, “Give me the persons, and take the goods for yourself.”
  35. 35. 22 But Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I have raised my hand to the LORD, God Most High, the Possessor of heaven and earth, 23 that I will take nothing, from a thread to a sandal strap, and that I will not take anything that is yours, lest you should say, ‘I have made Abram rich’— 24 except only what the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men who went with me: Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.” 31. What was Abram’s response (14:22-24)?
  36. 36. 31. What was Abram’s response (14:22-24)?
