August 13, Genesis 14:1-16 Abram was a bit of a badass
We have a war of four kings vs five kings and the confederation of the four kings beat the five. They've taken people and property from the different countries which happened to include Lot and his family. Unfortunately we don't know how big the armies of these kings were, we're only told what Abram had, just 318 men. With this seemingly small force he defeats the armies of the five kings, further he divides his army to come at them from different sides. A good tactic but still this seems like a small force. This is like a Stallone or Van Damme movie, but it's recorded here as history. While it doesn't specifically say that God gave Abram the victory, I make the conclusion that He did.
