Bible??? - Lot's Daughters

I saw the Lot's Wife salt shaker and I realized I need a "Bible passages that make Luke go ???" series here. So...

Gen 19:26-37

Lot and his family are fleeing Sodom and Gomorrah as God is setting up to destroy it. Lot's wife looks back and turns into a pillar of salt. Okay, sure, here's a punishment for not simply leaving everything behind. Or something.

Five verses later, however, we have the start of an incestuous relationship where Lot's daughters get him drunk so they can sleep with him.

Six verses after that, we learn that one of the children from this is the forefather of the Moabites. ...Ruth came from Moab. She's in the lineage of King David, and so, ultimately, Jesus.



More to come.



  1. I think this is my favorite so far.
    God does use imperfect people to complete his perfect will. What??? Ha!! :)

    1. Yep. I love how God uses us imperfect people and can redeem even the most messed up of situations.
