Judges

Details, Please (Part 3)

The Israelites respond to the attackers by crying to God for help, and receiving God’s aid in the form of a human judge (or “deliverer”) who restores order.  Lesser-known judges include Othniel, Ehud, Tola, Jair, and Jephthah, while more familiar figures include Deborah, the only female judge, ho led a military victory against the Canaanites.
