Theme

The Faithfulness of God

At first glance, it may seem that Judges deals more with God’s anger at Israel’s failure and his punishment of her sin than with his faithfulness. And yet, throughout the book, God is constantly forgiving Israel for her idolatries and delivering her from the oppression which resulted. Judges is an account of God’s undeserved grace and mercy towards his people. This is very clearly seen in the often repeated cycle of idolatry/punishment/repentance/deliverance. Rather than giving up on Israel, God continually redeems and delivers them. God is faithful even when we are faithless.

Purpose of Writing

From an historical perspective, Judges illustrates the transition from the era of the Judges to the era of the kings and prophets. It is a thematic history of Israel from the fifteenth century up to the eleventh century. It also serves as a warning to the people of what awaits them if they continue to ignore their rightful relationship with the Lord.

Every judge is a miniature image of Christ. They all deliver Israel from her oppressors and they all, in some way, communicate God’s voice to his people.

Christ in Judges

The judges as a whole demonstrate the three offices of Christ: Prophet, Priest and King. They are also military conquerors, which is a pre-shadowing of Christ’s role as the conqueror of sin and death.

Christ in Judges

The last section of Judges (17-21) shows us Christ through his absence. These chapters detail some of the worst depravities of any chapters in the Bible. And the constant refrain throughout this section is “In those days, there was no king in Israel; every man did what was right in his own eyes.” This political and moral anarchy came about because of the lack of a true king to lead the people. This demonstrates what happens apart from the rule of Christ.

Place in the Canon

Judges is a crucial link between two eras of Israel’s history. It is important to demonstrate how the nation evolved from a pseudo-theocracy to a monarchy. It’s history is not exhaustive; it is thematic. It’s nature as a thematic history also means that the events recorded there are not necessarily in chronological order. Ultimately, Judges sets the stage for the entrance of the monarchy and the ultimate Monarch – Jesus Christ.
