Theophany to Abraham.

The theophany to Abraham is so trinitarian one would suspect it was added by some Medieval scribe. Leaving off the obvious “three persons are one Lord” Abraham at different times calls all three “Lord”, then only one “Lord”, then the two that are sent (the angeloi) are addressed as “Lord” by Lot. The two are sent down as judges (after saying “will go down”), into Sodom, i.e. into the full measure of the sin of the world. Abraham intercedes for mercy standing, literally, in the place of the second person.
