SUNDAY AM ADULT BIBLE CLASSES
Spring Quarter: March 2019 through May 2019
A STUDY OF THE BOOK OF JUDGES: The Book of Judges covers one the most disturbing periods of human history because it reveals Israel’s life apart from God. The theme of the book is expressed three times in the statement, “In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes” (Judges 17:6; 18:1; 21:25). That statement speaks to the carefree willingness of God’s people to follow their own individual guidance. Eventually authority in Israel was given to a series of individuals called “judges” who stepped forward in times of crisis to provide leadership, but then who usually slipped back into obscurity. The time period of the judges included several “valleys” in which Israel defied God and “peaks” when God rescued His unfaithful people.
Many of the judges are well known to Bible students. These people revealed their human traits of strength and weakness at a time when faithlessness marred the land. This is an all too often painful study of a people and time when God was so easily forgotten, and it serves to remind God’s people today that when we turn away from God’s ways the consequences are horrific.
