FALL WEDNESDAY EVENING BIBLE STUDY!
On September 13th, we started the book of Judges. This is be a 10-week study, which will take us up to the week before Thanksgiving. We'll take the week of Thanksgiving off, and then start the Advent study.
Judges is the 6th book of the Bible, after the Israelites moved into the promised land and conquered the Canaanites. However, there were some Canaanites left behind which ultimately was the downfall of the Israelites. They started to lose sight of God.
In order to help, God sent a series of judges - political and military leaders to help. The cycle began - the people fell into chaos; God allowed the enemy to conquer them. A judge was appointed to help bring the Israelites back on track, which led to peace and devotion to God. Until they fell wandered off God's path again. There were several judges, including Deborah, Gideon and Sampson -people you may have heard of before.
It's a disturbing book in that it tells the story of the fall of the Israelites, and really shows them practically (if not totally) at their worst. But - it is also an important book to read, since we can see how they wandered off the path. And by studying that, we can learn from them, and recognize when we start to wander off the path. (And hopefully have an AHA and come back home!)
