Judges 19, Significance between this and Genesis 19?

Question: Judges 19, is a similar story as in Genesis 19 if I remember correctly.. always struck me as odd, is there any significance to these two stories other than being almost exactly the same? Answer: I think the main significance is that it shows us the depravity of the people involved. Of course we know about the depravity of Sodom, but here we get to see that God's people had come to the same unbridled lust and sinful practices. This gross sin shows how far Israel has fallen. -PJ
