Bible Reference & Cartoon Description

Genesis 13:8-9 (NLT)
8 Finally Abram said to Lot, “Let’s not allow this conflict to come between us or our herdsmen. After all, we are close relatives! 9 The whole countryside is open to you. Take your choice of any section of the land you want, and we will separate. If you want the land to the left, then I’ll take the land on the right. If you prefer the land on the right, then I’ll go to the left.”

DRAWING NOTES:

TIME OF DAY:
Unspecified in Bible narrative. Mid morning.

LIGHTING NOTES:
Sunlight from the right illuminates the scene.

CHARACTERS PRESENT:
Abram on the left with Lot, his nephew, on the right. In the background you can see some shepherds arguing.

RESEARCH/ADDITIONAL NOTES:
Verse 3 informs us that Abram and Lot were camped between Bethel and Ai – see map below for position.
The Jordan river is about 17 miles (27.3 km) due east of this location, “as the crow flies”. Jerusalem is about 11 miles (17.7 km) almost due south. The current northern shore of the Dead Sea is about 19 miles (30.5 km) south east. The coast of the Mediterranean sea is about 30 miles (48 km) due west.

This is the first time I have drawn & coloured up Abram/Abrahm, so it’s an important cartoon, since he is a key figure in the Bible narrative!

Here’s an enlarged view of the shepherds in this scene.

Bible Doctrine Notes
13:7-12 CHRISTIAN ETHICS, War and Peace (4.44G)

War and peace are as ancient as humanity. The distribution of goods & wealth is a major area of dispute, leading to conflict. God’s conciliatory impulses to seek peace have always been available for people to act upon. The willingness to compromise even to the extent of giving up economic advantage (as Abram did in this passage) often leads to peaceful resolution of conflict.
