When King Chedorlaomer and his allies made captives of Lot and his family (Genesis 14), Abram set out to rescue them. Abram was successful and brought back Lot and all that was Lot’s. Thus Abram led captivity (Lot and his family) captive. This was a type or picture of the rescue that Jesus would undertake on behalf of those who had been taken captive by death (see yesterday’s post: Jesus Led Captivity Captive).
The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in biblical terms.
