Judges

By Scott Brown, 2017/08/03

The book of Judges displays, in graphic form, the tragedy of autonomy. It shows what it looks like when every man does what is right in his own eyes. In the book of Joshua, we observed faithfulness and the rest God gave His people on every side. The book of Judges shows us what disobedience looks like and the effects of doing what is right in your own eyes. It is violent, unsettling, and even embarrassing to read in certain places. It records family feuds, civil wars, sexual abuse, radical immaturity, and unspeakable violence that occurred over a 350-year timeframe. Judges provides us with one of the most dramatic warnings in the Bible.
