In this week’s lesson, the second in the patriarchal stories, Ross continues his ongoing study of the triennial Torah cycle of readings. The class covers material found in Genesis chapter 14. Ross shares that in this chapter we are introduced to a view of Abram that seems far different than the peaceful patriarch of the previous lesson. Here we have Abram involved in a battle to recover his nephew Lot, who was taken captive. Abram the Hebrew, returns victorious and is met by one named Melchi-Zedek. What does Scripture mean by the epithet Hebrew? Who was the mysterious Melchi-Zedek? These points and more are covered in this teaching.
