77: Abimelech, Gideon’s Worst Son (Judges 9-10)

We all roughly know the story of Gideon and his 300 men, but did you know Gideon didn’t finish his life like a judge was supposed to? He had heaps of kids and thought of himself as a king. One of his 70 (yes, SEVENTY) sons, Abimelech, was a total tool-bag. He thought he would continue his father’s legacy by making himself king and killing everyone in line ahead of him. Let’s just say things didn’t work out too well for him.

74: Deborah, the Female Judge (Judges 4-5)

We discuss why it was significant that God raised up a female judge during a cultural patriarchy. Also, this story features one of the gnarliest deaths recorded in the Bible. Let’s just say someone wasn’t a happy camper…

71: Israel’s First Civil War (Judges 20-21)

The tribe of Benjamin chuck a Sodom and Gomorrah and do something terrible, only this time there aren’t angels to interfere and strike everyone with blindness. THEN, they act all defensive when the other tribes get upset. THEN, they go to war against the rest of the country. THEN heaps of people die. Such a dumb thing to have happen. This isn’t the last time that Israel fights with itself, but it can definitely be agreed that it was the first.

70: A Levite’s Concubine Cut Into Pieces (Judges 19)

During the time of Othniel, the first Judge, Israel is in a pretty bad spot. This story follows a Levite and his concubine as they are left to their own devices. What results is a pretty gruesome sign being mailed to each of the tribes of Israel. In this episode, Jeremy and Ryan get confused over the wording of the ESV, talk about soup and just how fallen Israel was, right after they settled in Canaan.

69: Othniel, the First Judge (Judges 1-3a)

Israel is beginning to spiral out of control following the death of Joshua. They’ve taken Jerusalem, but then they are oppressed by Cushion Man and his forces for a number of years. Who will God rise up to deliver the people? None other than Caleb’s nephew/son-in-law (don’t think about it), Othniel!

68: Micah’s Household Idols (Judges 17-18, 1)

Lithuanian language tricks, a guy gets a personal priest and worships idols, which get stolen by other Israelites and worshiped elsewhere. How the people have fallen! We lay the ground work before we talk about the first judge.

What do you think? Did we miss anything? Let us know! Ryan later finds out that Dan did not initially settle where he thought, but he doesn’t realise that this week. Haha.

67: Intro to Judges (Judges 1)

We begin our look at this juicy book by talking about how it was compiled in order of depravity, not chronology. We also talk about how sock wrestling could be made more interesting….
