Tonight is our second in-house meet for Java with the Judges Bible study! If you’re local, I hope to see you at 8pm. If you’re not, get ready for our discussion here on the website tomorrow.
If you don’t have the workbook, don’t worry! Just read the first three chapters of Judges. You’ll be good to go.
(You can still get the workbook, if you want, by clicking on the cover image.)
Key characters include:
- Acsah (Caleb’s daughter)
- Othniel (Acsah’s husband and the first judge)
- Ehud (the second judge)
- Shamgar (the third judge)
We’ll be discussing the downward cultural spiral that initiated the need for judges (and how that relates to us today). We’ll also talk about the roles of leaders, extreme obedience and the dangers of drifting. I’ll also toss in a few added details about ancient inheritance traditions, family lines and the faithfulness of God’s promises.
Sounds like fun – right? I know I’m looking forward to it!
ps: I just started reading a novelized account of Caleb. Francine Rivers is an historical author who does a fabulous job putting flesh on accurate Biblical study. So far this is a very interesting read.
Right now you can get the whole series — “Sons of Encouragement” — in paperback or on your kindle for a steal. It’s actually five novellas for the price of one! The series includes character studies of Aaron, Caleb, Jonathan, Amos and Silas.
