Judges 10 & 11
6 days ago
Pastor Stadler led the study of the complicated life and leadership of Jephthah in Judges 10-11. He vows to sacrifice the first thing out of his door at home if God lets him win his battle against the Ammonites. He wins. When he returns home, his daughter is the first thing to meet him from his house. Does he honor his vow? Does he kill her and offer her as a burnt offering? Where is the grace of God in this story? What are we to learn from the complicated life of Jephthah? Was he an example of his time, when “each man did what was right in his own eyes”? Can we see evidence in our world of such an attitude? How does the grace of God equip us to confront it and deal with it?
