Description

Why was Sodom condemned to be destroyed? Weren't there other nations guilty of horrible evil which were spared? Why did Sodom display cruelty even to its own poor and needy citizens? Which is worse, the repeated violation of a lesser sin or the occasional transgression of a severe sin? Did the three wayfarers visit Avraham in the world of physical reality, or did the entire episode transpire in the mind of Avraham alone? Can a prophet receive direct communication from God or must an angel serve as the intermediary, bringing the word of God to the prophet?
