Lent 5 – Genesis 14:14-20

Passage: Genesis 14:14-20

Sermon Summary: Melchizedek served as an example of Christ when he blessed Abram and God. As a king of righteousness, Melchizedek represented true religion of the true God; not over-emphasizing human righteousness but using the Gospel word of God’s righteousness in the coming Messiah. The book of Hebrews makes this connection very clear and so it supplements our sermon text.
