Puzzling Passages Made Plain: Tossed to the Depraved

Genesis 19:8 and Judges 19:23-28 explained by Jim Brown: He also explains the importance of the threshold and “step on the crack, you break your mother’s back.”

These two passages always had my head tipping sideways going “What? Why, Lord?” Of course, the surface answer is culture, but the spiritual one does not compute other than woman, in biblical symbolism, represents a group of worshipers or a religious order.

Could Lot’s daughters represent physical (seed of Abraham) and spiritual (seed of Jesus) Israel? If so, then the concubine represents physical Israel’s predicament while the young woman still inside shows the protection currently over spiritual Israel?

Now that spiritual Israel is larger than the physical one, could the tale of Oholah and Oholibah (Ezekiel 23:2-49) foreshadow the judgment (or refinement) of each one during the end of the age?
