  • Discuss Lot’s reaction to the news that God was going to destroy the city. Genesis 19:12-15.

  • Review Genesis 19:16-18. What are some reasons for Lot’s hesitation? What could have possibly motivated Lot’s refusal to leave?

  • Review Genesis 19:29. Read 1 Peter 2:7-8. Discuss Abraham’s request for Lot. Discuss Lot’s righteousness.

  • Discuss the matter of fact reporting of Genesis 19:30-38. In this repulsive act, we witness the birth of two nations.

  • For further reflection consider Deuteronomy 2:19 and Zephaniah 2:9. Also reflect upon the fact that Ruth was a Moabitess and became part of the ancestral line of Christ.
