Judges ~ Lecture 7 – Unexpected Deliverer

Lecture 7 – With the death of the first judge, Othniel (3:11), the Israelites once again enter into a cycle of sin. Judges 3:12 says, “And the people of Israel again did what was evil in the sight of the Lord.” As a result of their sin, God “strengthened Eglon the king of Moab against Israel.” Starting with the story of Ehud, each of the judges (for whom we have a full story) is what the world would describe as an ‘unexpected’ leader. In this lesson, we will look at Ehud’s apparent weakness to see how God used him, not in spite of but through his weakness.
