An Introduction to Judges

February 8, 2015 Speaker: Paul Ortlinghaus Series: Judges: Fallen & Messy People; Faithful and Merciful God

Topic: Book Passage: Judges 21:25

Tim Keller notes six main truths about God that the writer of Judges wants us to learn and live by.

  1. God relentlessly offers his grace to people who do not deserve it, or seek it, or even appreciate it after they have been saved by it.
  2. God wants lordship over every area of our lives, not just some.
  3. There is a tension between grace and law, between conditionality and unconditionality.
  4. There is a need for continual spiritual renewal in our lives here on earth, and a way to make that a reality.
  5. We need a true Savior, to which all human saviors point, through both their flaws and strengths.
  6. God is in charge, no matter what it looks like.

Here is the famous "Judges Cycle"
