Judges: An Introduction to Wholehearted Discipleship

Judges 1-2:5

“Judges can be described as ‘despicable people doing deplorable things,’ and as ‘trashy tales about dysfunctional characters.’ As the history unfolds even the ‘heroes,’ the judges, become increasingly flawed and failing. They do many appalling things, and their efforts have less and less redemptive effect.” — Tim Keller

 

“Common, but faithless sense, begins to prevail here.” — Tim Keller 

“The verdict of the angel of the Lord is that it was not the superior might of the Canaanites that defeated Israel or their determination to remain in the land but Israel’s unfaithfulness to the Lord—their making a covenant with the people of the land. Those who are unfaithful to the Lord cannot expect to have his continued presence with them. By that unfaithfulness, they forfeited the full possession of what God had promised them. What began with making a covenant with a Canaanite at Bethel ended with bitter weeping there before the Lord they had betrayed.” — Kent Hughes
