The story of Lot and his daughters in the Hebrew Testament was written to tell the people of that time what God would do to them if they sinned. After the story of what happened in the cave after Sodom was destroyed, Lot’s story abruptly ends and a New Testament Epistle calls him “a righteous man.” Needless to say this story is not told in Sunday School lessons! But there is a greater story to tell about the lives of these people and how they played out against the background of famine, abductions, earthquakes, distruction, and family dynamics. Lot and his daughters were in the lineage of Jesus. Ruth was a Moabite who married Boaz. Their son was Obed, whose son was Jesse, whose son was King David, and the generations continued to the birth of Jesus We cannot ignore this exciting and powerful lineage any longer!
