13 - Abram and the Covenant God made with him.

Kathleen’s thoughts
Melchizedek, the King of Salem (king of righteousness, and then he is also king of Salem, which means king of peace.)(Hebrews 7:3 Without (record of) father or mother or ancestral line, neither with beginning of days nor ending of life, but resembling the Son of God, he continues to be a priest without interruption and without successor) Salem is later known as Jerusalem, he brought bread and wine. He was a priest to God Most High. Hebrews 7:4 Now observe and consider how great (a personage) this was to whom even Abraham the patriarch gave a tenth (the topmost of the pick of the heap) of the spoils. Jesus is known as Prince of Peace and he too used the bread and wine.
Genesis 17 is where God makes a covenant with Abram and changed his name to Abraham and his wife Sarai to Sarah. God told Abraham that He will make him the father of many nations.
Haggai the servant of Sarai who gave her to her husband Abram so they could have children as she was barren, gave birth to Ishmael, and God blessed him and said he will be fruitful and will multiply him greatly and he will be father to the 12 tribal leaders. And I will make him into a great nation But God will confirm His covenant with Isaac, who Sarah will bear to you at this time next year… When He finished talking with Abraham God withdrew from him. It was after this that Abraham and his household carried out God’s orders of circumcision
