Book of Judges
7 days ago
Today we concluded our introduction background for our study of Judges. We saw what God expected His people to do and not do as they conquered the Promised Land. Then we studied chapters 1 & 2 and saw how positively Joshua’s efforts were treated, but how bitterly disappointed God was with the 12 tribes as they took possession of their tribal territories. Chapter Two concluded with a summary of the pattern that will repeat itself all through the book of Judges. The Israelites will disobey God. God will unleash an oppressor. The Israelites will groan and God will have compassion on them and raise up a rescuer, a “judge” (or “savior”). The Judge will defeat the oppressor, but after he dies, there will be peace for a while and then Israel will be unfaithful again and the cycle will repeat itself.
