    The Book Of Judges

    • 1512 Words
    • 7 Pages

    second half of this class’s readings, one reads into the latter and larger part of the Old Testament, as well as the earlier portion of the New Testament. This provides a nice transitionary period in realizing the connection between some of the Messianic and other prophecies made in the prophetic books of the Old Testament with the realizations of those prophecies in the New Testament, with both the exile of Israel, and the birth and life of Jesus Christ. Immediately following the previous reflective journal, the class read the books of Judges. This book is one of my favorite books of the Old Testament, and of the entire Bible. Solely speaking of the literature content of the book, I love the way it reads and the intense…

    Throughout the book of Judges, the Israelites went through many hard times. They created this cycle that they could not get rid of. The Israelites had many “judges” to help them get onto the right track with God but it never really worked out. After each “judge” would die then they would just go back into the sin they had started. I believe the Hebrews were very disappointed reading the book of Judges seeing how their ancestors acted instead of putting their trust in God. The book of Judges…

    • 7 Pages

    The book of Judges is cyclical in terms of what occurs throughout the narratives. To begin with, the Israelites break the covenant and they worship other gods. Yahweh then gives them over to the hands of the enemy. Yahweh in turn shows mercy on his people and raises a judge. This judge leads the Israelites out of misfortune. The cycle then starts over. Judges are often associated with a judicial system. It is important to make note that the Hebrew Bible judges are charismatic military leaders…

    What’s a stereotype? A stereotype is to believe unfairly that all people or things with a particular characteristic are the same. It’s a bad trait that most human beings have and do every day without even noticing. We tend to “Judge a book by its cover.” But you never know what could be in that book, may it just be a clear white cover with just the authors name, or a colorful active cover, that seems more appealing. It’s all about the material inside, that we wouldn’t know what that material is…

    God will always remain faithful to his covenant with his people. In the book of Judges, God shows his faithfulness by selecting corrupt leaders, called judges, to deliver the people of Israel from their enemies. Sometime after the death of Joshua, the people of Israel started to assimilate with their neighboring pagan tribes, The Canaanites instead of driving them out of the Promise Land as The Lord had commanded . In Judges 2:1-23, the story of Israel’s disobedience and faithfulness is…

    How To Judge The Book

    • 1015 Words
    • 5 Pages

    Do not judge a book by its cover is the advice many people get. It is sound advice; one cannot determine the quality of the novel from the pretty picture on the front. However many of us ignore this and just use the outward appearance of the book to judge the story inside. What we do to books, we also do to people. Many of us judge people by first impressions, rumors or outward appearances without actually learning about them, and a six-year old Scout Finch is no exception. In To Kill a…

    “. . . [Jephthah] did with her according to his vow that he had made” (Judges 11:39b1). The tragedy and confusion of the account of Jephthah lie in the fact that Jephthah, not only fulfilled his unfaithful vow, but the fulfillment of that unfaithful vow resulted in the killing of an innocent life, his daughter. To provide further background into the account, a brief summary of the problem text from the book of Judges will follow. Jephthah, a man appointed leader of Israel by the Gileadites2 to…

    Joshua, Judges, And Ruth

    • 705 Words
    • 3 Pages

    The period between Joshua, Judges, and Ruth was an unique era. In Joshua, the Israelites had to fight many battles and conquer cities and towns to obtain land. In Judges we read that Israel needed constant rescuing, as God was punishing them for their lawlessness. Lastly, in Ruth we see how God works out His sovereign plan, even through seemingly ordinary means. Joshua is a book of conquering and allotting land. It opens as God gives Joshua a promise of victory (1:2-5) and a command to be…

    Jephthah's Vengeance

    • 919 Words
    • 4 Pages

    The vow that Jephthah made to the Lord in Judges 11 led to the sacrifice of his only daughter. In the book Death and Dissymmetry by Mieke Bal, he describes the vow as “guaranteeing primal violence.” Bal says that since Jephthah’s vow contained the word “whatever” it is used as a military tactic, which means he is trying to find a scapegoat if he is not able to defeat the Ammonites himself. By not having the sacrifice before him when he made the vow Jephthah can be viewed as being dishonest…
