TODAY'S NEW bible lesson ...

We are currently surveying the entire Old Testament, one Book at a time. This morning it's the Book of Judges. You can read these Lessons by "clicking" HERE. Thus far only the Surveys of Genesis through Judges have been written.

The Book of Judges has a key phrase, used twice, that seems to frame its entire message. "Every man did that which was right in his own eyes," Judges 17:6 and 21:25.

This Portion of Scripture attempts to describe about 400 years of the "darkest" time in all Israel's history.

It's "judges" are men, and a woman, who "led" and helped "defend" their Country from approaching and sometimes enslaving enemies.

Here they are in order:

Othniel, the first Judge after Joshua's death.

Ehud, who was left-handed!

Shamgar, Judges 3:31, a one-verse administration!

Deborah and Barak, the only "duo" team!

Gideon, one of the better known leaders.

Abimelech, a treacherous judge, a murderer really!

Tola,

Jair,

Jephthah, who sacrificed his daughter!

Ibzan,

Elon,

Abdon,

and Samson, the strong man whose life was wrecked by sin!

Wow!

Then the Book closes in chapters 17-21 with two of the morally "lowest" stories in all Scripture! Anarchy, terror!

Truly in Judges, "Every man did that which was right in his own eyes," There's no doubt about that.

Proverbs 14:34 comes to mind here. "Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people."

May our Country remember that truth today.
