096.1: Judges; OT Lesson 19 (Core)

The Reign of the Judges

The book of Judges presents a hodgepodge of redemption and anarchy, all leading up to theme of the need for a king in Israel (kind of a teaser for the King David sequel). This portion of the episode covers:

  • Lessons we learn from Judges (cycles of apostasy and return which should be familiar to readers of the Book of Mormon)
  • Lessons we learn from each story
    • Deborah and Jael
    • Gideon
    • Samson
  • Who God has “raised up” in our lives to help us
  • How we can surround ourselves by influences that will help us live according to our values
