Description

Seeing the world they knew destroyed, Lot's daughters get their father drunk, sleep with him, and become pregnant. Josephus thought they were heroines, and the Book of Jubilee thought they were villains. The midrash has a whole lot to say about them, and the Ramban was really in doubt. It's only a few verses but there's a whole lot to say. Inspired by Dr Yonatan Grossman's work on the topic
