Just before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah Abraham has a noteworthy conversation with the Lord. In it we discover a God who is eager to extend mercy to the wicked for the sake of the righteous. The question then becomes, how many righteous people are enough. 50? 45? 10? The gospel suggest that only one is necessary. For one, God will gladly spare all. Jesus is that one.
