Lesson 219: Sodom And Gomorrah

Updated: Jan 2

Gen. 19:1-30


Full Lesson HERE



INTRODUCTION. Two of Abraham's visitors (angels) journeyed to Sodom to warn Lot that the Lord intended to destroy the city. Lot, who was sitting in the gate of the city, met the strangers and invited them to his home for the night. At that time the gate of a city was the place of judgment (court), and Lot may have been there as a judge hearing disputes.


At first the strangers said they would spend the night in the street, but Lot urged them to come to his house, for the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were inhabited by immoral men. Later in the evening the unrighteous men of the city surrounded Lot's house and

demanded that Lot send the strangers out to them, but Lot refused. When the wicked

Sodomites attempted to break down the door to Lot's house, the angels struck them with blindness.


The angels then told Lot the Lord was going to destroy the wicked city and for him and his family to flee. The next morning, as Lot, his wife, and two daughters lingered, the angels brought them out of the city and told them to escape for their lives, not to look back, but to flee to the mountains. Note: there were not ten righteous people in the city of Sodom.
