Abram Delivers Lot

Genesis 14 - Abram Delivers Lot: Sermon by Messianic Rabbi Jeff Zaremsky.

Abraham and Lot were relatives, uncle and nephew. Lot’s father, Abraham’s brother, died young and Abraham became a father figure to him.

Lot was Abraham’s nephew. After Lot’s father died, Lot followed Abraham: from Ur to Hebron, to Canaan to Egypt, and back to Canaan. After all the kindness that Abraham showed to his nephew, Lot allowed his herdsman to argue with Abraham’s herdsman. Being the elder and the one with the greater wealth, Abraham could have settled the dispute by choosing the choicest land for himself, but instead he allowed Lot to choose. Instead of giving preference to his uncle, to whom he owed so much, he choose the best land for himself and left Abraham. No doubt this made things more difficult in some ways for Abraham.

War in Sodom

Lot choose to live near and then later in Sodom. Sodom went to war with another nation and Lot was taken captive.

Magnanimity of Abraham:

When Abraham hears about Lot’s plight, he risks his own life to save one who had hurt and rejected Him, amazing love.
