Timeline of Truth: Military Failure: Partial Obedience Is Disobedience (Judges 1:1 – 2:5)
With this lesson, we jump right into the first part of the two-part introduction. Chapter 1 of Judges records the failure of the tribes of Israel to conquer the land as commanded by God. They fail to drive out the enemy, dwell with the enemy, and some are even driven out by the enemy. God addresses this disobedience in 2:1-5, and indicates that He is withdrawing His special support of them. The remaining enemy among the children of Israel will be a thorn in their sides, and the false gods of these people will become a snare to them. Thus begins the Book of Judges and the fast decline of a nation who refuses to obey God.
