The redemption history

People like to watch movies that promote redemption. I believe a person can create a great movie by read the Bible. The history of Abram would be a great movie.
Abram heard some bad news. His nephew was captured and was in trouble times. The land was not safe so his nephew had issues.
Abram wanted to save his nephew so he fought the people that capture his family member.
Abram was a savior. Jesus is the great Savior. He knew that people are sinners. People will go to hell because of their sins. Jesus came to the earth. He lived a perfect life and died on the cross. He conquered death. He was the perfect lamb. He fulfilled the Old Testament's sacrificial system. If a person wants to experience God then they will repent from their sins. That person will go to heaven.
Abram's nephew was in a battle. He was weak and couldn't save himself. Abram's nephew wanted to have freedom.
Every human being is a sinner. The person can accept the pardon or reject the pardon. If a person accept the cross of Jesus then they will have freedom.
The world system wants to control mankind. The sinful nature wants to control mankind. If a person have Jesus in the heart then that person will win in this war.

Genesis 14:13-16


13 A man who had escaped came and reported this to Abram the Hebrew. Now Abram was living near the great trees of Mamre the Amorite, a brother of Eshkol and Aner, all of whom were allied with Abram. 14 When Abram heard that his relative had been taken captive, he called out the 318 trained men born in his household and went in pursuit as far as Dan. 15 During the night Abram divided his men to attack them and he routed them, pursuing them as far as Hobah, north of Damascus. 16 He recovered all the goods and brought back his relative Lot and his possessions, together with the women and the other people.
