Heroes, Monsters, and a Great Salvation
This Fall, we will be studying together the Book of Judges; an historical look at “despicable people doing deplorable things”. This Book records only a few highs surrounded by many more lows of murder, assassination, massacres, immorality, lawlessness, and unfaithfulness. Yet in the midst of this awful display, God is at work. The Book tells of the “judges” raised up by God to save His people over and over again from the cruel oppression of the nations all around them. Yet, even these “heroes” showed their own flaws and failings reminding us of our longing for Jesus, the righteous Hero and Deliverer promised of old.
The Book of Judges is about God, about His mercy and His longsuffering. It is about a God Who continually works in, and through, and for His people despite their resistance and despite their failures both then and now. You are invited to join us as we study this incredible Book. Dan Long will be teaching this class and we will be meeting in the Upper Room at 9am.
