For the Lord and for Gideon

Judges 7 continues the story of Gideon and the unexpected and unusual way the Lord secures victory for His people. We also talk further about knowing the will of the Lord.

Mighty Man of Valor

In this lesson we focus on Gideon and Judges 6. The angel of the Lord hails Gideon as a mighty man of valor and yet his actions seem to indicate he is anything but. We will also discuss what we are to make of the laying of the fleece and how Gideon's requests for signs instruct us.

A Mother In Israel

Today's lesson focuses on Judges 4 and 5 and an unusual judge among the judges we will study. Not only is this judge not a warrior, she is also not a man! Deborah will describe herself as a "mother in Israel" and we will discuss both her leadership and the faith (or lack?) of her commander Barak. We will also look at another strong woman of valor, Jael, and her rather gruesome triumph over the evil Sisera.

Othniel, Ehud, & Shamgar

The cycle of rebellion and redemption takes on flesh and blood as we study the first three judges in Judges 3:7-31. We will look at the first of several rather graphic portions of Scripture and discuss the truth that God delights to use ordinary, unlikely means to achieve His purposes.
