Study Guide Bible Lesson 10: God Uses Judges
Memory Verse: Ephesians 2:8-9 8For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift – 9not from works, so that no one can boast. CSB
- The cycle repeated throughout the book of Judges is called The Cycle of Sin.
- The first phase of the cycle is rebellion.
- The second phase of the cycle is bondage.
- The third phase of the cycle is repentance.
- The fourth phase of the cycle is rescue.
- The fifth phase of the cycle is rest.
- Rebellion is defined as an act of opposition or an uprising against those in authority.
- Repentance means the act of turning away from sin and toward God.
- The three main judges were Deborah, Gideon, and Samson.
- Othniel was the first judge. He was Caleb’s nephew.
- Ehud, who was left-handed, was the second judge. He killed a very obese king and bought an 80-year rest for Israel- the longest time of peace during the time of the judges.
- The period of the judges lasted approximately 350 years, from after Joshua’s death to the reign of Saul.
- God raised up the judges to deliver Israel from oppression and govern them afterwards.
- Oppression means being weighted down by harsh or cruel authority.
- After each judge died, the people’s behavior became worse than before.
- According to Judges 17:6 and 21:25, the Israelites’ problem was that everyone did what was right in his own eyes.
- A parable is a story illustrating a biblical truth.
- The word prodigal means very extravagant and wasteful.
- In the parable of the prodigal son, the younger son represents sinners who accept God’s grace; the older son represents the Pharisees, sinners who would not accept God’s grace because they believed they had earned a right status with God.
- A person cannot earn salvation by following rules.
- Believers are saved by grace through faith in Christ alone.
- Only the shed blood of Jesus can save souls for eternity. Nothing people do will add to or replace the work Jesus did for them on the cross.
