The Book of Judges (Cover-to-Cover Series)

Today, we welcome to the podcast, Dr. Don Taylor. Dr. Taylor is the Provost and Dean-of-the-College at Briercrest College and Seminary in Caronport, Saskatchewan. In addition to his administrative roles he also teaches a number of courses including biblical Hebrew, wisdom literature, and Old Testament narrative, all of which makes him a great candidate to help us better understand a number of books of the Bible but, for today, we’re focusing on just one: the book of Judges.

Judges records, in many ways, one of the darkest times in the history of God’s people. There is disobedience, oppression, discipline, cowardice, and rebellion. As one author bluntly states, the account “begins bleakly, continues darkly, and ends horribly” (Kuruvilla, Judges, 6). What could possibly benefit a Christian today spending time in such filth? How can such depravity, inspired as it may be, be used by the Spirit of God to aid the people of God in becoming progressively conformed to the image of the Son of God? Let’s find out.
