The Book of Judges - Rulers of Israel and Deliverers
The Book of Judges covers the period of Israel’s history from the death of Joshua (1375 B.C.) to the era of Samuel the Prophet (1075 B.C.) a period of about three centuries. The generally accepted theory is that Samuel wrote the Book. This era was before Israel had Kings. However, during this period, certain men and women rose up to rule Israel called Judges. Their primary purpose was to act as deliverers as Israel constantly chose to serve the gods of the surrounding cultures and God constantly brought other nations to war against and sometimes conquer them for that reason. Therefore, as deliverers, they were types of Christ who was the ultimate deliverer. The Judges were largely men and women who had frail human natures human faults. God used such people so that He would get the glory as there was nothing in these deliverers who deserved glory. Yet God used them in this difficult period of the formation of the nation.
