Biblical Faith – with Sam Peak
Weekly series with new shows available every Tuesday.
We read in the Torah that the people at the time of the mabbul were punished by water, and the people of S’dom were punished by fire. From the use of the word “רבה” (great), in both instances, we deduced that the generation of the mabbul also suffered by fire, and the citizens of S’dom too were punished by water. For twenty-five years prior to the destruction of S’dom Elokim brought tremors onto the land and made mountains around S’dom quake to warn the people that they must repent, but they did not take the hint. Therefore, the four cities of S’dom and its suburbs were situated on one table of rock. The angel turned over the rock and with that one act the cities were overturned.
From “Mysteries of the Creation” by Rabbi Dovid Brown. We are studying from the following pages: pg. 96–101.
