DVD 4: Judges

Get the Full Version

SUNDAY SCHOOL LADY

So that brings us to the SEVENTH book of the Bible – and the SECOND Historical Book!

Genesis – Exodus – Leviticus – Numbers – Deuteronomy- Joshua- JUDGES!

IAN

Why would they call a book “Judges?”.

SUNDAY SCHOOL LADY

Because it tells the stories of twelve leaders God used to help Israel. And those leaders were called the “judges.”

IAN

Did they wear black robes and sit in a courtroom?

SUNDAY SCHOOL LADY

No, they weren’t judges like our judges today. They were really just leaders.

BROTHER LOUIE

What were their names, Sunday School Lady?

SUNDAY SCHOOL LADY

Oooh – The best way to answer that question, is with a song.

Like THIS one!

BUCK

And now, the fabulous Bentley Brothers…

BENTLEY BROTHERS

You can’t turn on the tv today without seeing a courtroom show with a celebrity judge

just a-judging away deciding who takes home the dough.

But long before television (yeah, people used to live without it)

God sent celebrity judges to Israel and there’s a book about it

It’s called Judges. That’s the name. The subject and the title are one and the same.

Like a book about weather called weather.

Or a book about Heather called Heather.

Who’s Heather?

She’s my cousin (oh) and that’s her name.

Yeah, but who are the Judges?

You’ve got Othniel and Ehud

Shamgar and Deborah

Gideon and Tola

Jair and Jephtha

Who could forget about ole’ Ibzon

Or Elon and Abdon

And the most famous of them all, that long haired dude named Samson

He was strong!
