The Book of Judges is the seventh book of the Hebrew and the Christian Bibles. It was named after the rulers who are referred to as “judges,” who are the main figures of the book. The judges were more military than religious, as they were mainly soldiers and fighters. The book basically highlights the judges’ deeds, and many of these judges helped the Israelites from the repercussions of their sins.
We can learn many lessons from the Book of Judges — about how the Lord allows suffering on His people as a result of their transgressions, and that He is willing to deliver them as often as they make repentance for their sins.
