After Abram delivered Lot from captivity, he is met by a man named Melchizedek. By the number of lines that speak of Melchizedek, it might appear that Mechizedek is not an important figure. His name appears only one time in the book of Genesis and his interaction with Abram takes up only three verses. By comparison the name Abram/Abraham appears 200 times in the book of Genesis and is the focus of over 234 verses. If you think that he is not important, you would be mistaken.
