Timeline of Truth: Introduction to the Book of Judges
With this lesson, we begin our study in one of the most honest and discouraging books of the Bible: Judges. God does not sugarcoat the sins of people or of nations. As the 7th book of the Bible, Judges serves to remind us of the downhill spiral of any people who reject God and His design for them. Though these events take place prior to the kings of Israel (beginning with Saul), the truths we will uncover will connect with the very time in which we live. We will give a brief overview of the book’s historical setting and purpose, and see that God alone is the Hero of the book, and rescues on the basis of His grace. [NOTE: The recording is not the best due to some technical issues. Sorry.]

God performs the final plague. He kills all of the firstborn in all of the land of Egypt. He passes over the houses that have applied the lamb’s blood to the door as He instructed.

Pharaoh (who’s firstborn had been killed) sends the children of Israel away. The Egyptians encourage them to go. God delivers the children of Israel from Egypt in an amazing, powerful way, and establishes an eternal observance of Unleavened Bread and the Passover. It’s that big of a deal.
