Meeting Day(s): Sundays, beginning July 7, 2019
Meeting Time: 10:00 AM The Book of Judges
The Book of Judges covers the time following the death of Joshua until the prophet Samuel, who anointed David king over Israel. Covering almost 450 years, Judges shows how God faithfully sought after His people even after they broke His covenant with them. God commanded Israel to drive out the Canaanites from the Promised Land. However, Israel disobeyed and did not "destroy all their figured stones and destroy all their metal images and demolish all their high places." Instead, Israel "did what was evil in the sight of the LORD and served the Baals." In their disobedience, God's beloved people forfeited many blessings and instead were visited by anarchy and chaos. Israel forgot God, but He never forgot them. He sought after them to restore His blessings to them. We call that grace.
There's a lot for us to learn about ourselves and our gracious God as we study how He worked with His people during the time of the Judges. Lessons will include:
An Everlasting Covenant
God Raises Up Judges
The First Judges
Deborah and Barak
Abimelech through Abdon
Meet Samson (pictured above)
Samson and the Lord's Triumph
Life Outside of God's Covenant
