Re: What this implies

Genesis 13:5

And Lot also, who went with Abram, had flocks, and herds, and tents.?

Rashi interpretation,

What brought this about? The fact that he traveled with Avram.

I was curious so thought I would look it all up however it makes no sense to me in your context, I would like to ask why it's took 3700 years for this to now be known, surely records must have been kept by the scholars over the years.
