Old Testament 11 Ellen Davis Friday, October 24, 2008 Joshua 4:1-24 Judges 4:1-24 1 Samuel 18: 10-30 Pick one of these for exegis: Book of Judges:  Largely a story of violence, dischord and confusion.  Ends with the hope of wise  government.  The final section 17-21, sometimes called an appendix, (give appendix special  attention) – the final section is bracketed on either side by the single most memorable line in the  book.   In those days there was no king and everyone did what was right in his  own eyes. Directly violates the way things should be from a Deuteronomistic perspective.  And we’re in a  book of the Deuternomistic history.  6:17 following:   “You shall indeed keep the the commandments of the Lord, and you shall do what is right in the  eyes of the Lord, in order that it will be good for you, and you will take possession of the land  promised to you.” It must be good and right in the eyes of the Lord.  And everyone must do what is good or right in  one’s OWN eyes, the kingdom of Judges is fundamentally at variance with the Deuternomic law.  How things deteriorated to that point. If you preach from the Lectionary, not a lot of chance to preach from the Book of Judges. And Joshua 24:31  This is repeated  Judges 2:7 exact statement repeated with slightly alternated  final clause.  “… who had seen all the great doing of the Lord which he had done for Israel.” The Judges 2:8 Joshua dies.  2:10  And also that generation was gathered to their ancestors, and  there arose a generation after them that did not know the Lord and also the deed that he had  done for Israel.

Israel kind of falls off the mountain side.  The memory, the great deed, remembering the great  deeds of the Lord.  The death of the generation after Joshua is like the rope snaps, and Israel no  longer knows the great doing of the Lord of Israel. Do you happen to remember what happened the last time somebody didn’t know what God was  doing?  Pharaoh.  The Israelites don’t understand, an dthey act out their ignoracnce.  And the  Israelites did what was evil in the eyes of the Lord, and they served the Baaleem, and went after  other gods, some of the gods of the people round about them, and bowed down to them, and  they vexed the Lord. Now the people of Israel are religiously indistinctionable from the people’s round about them.  Judges 3:1  they had been left there definitely by God to test the Israelites.  They intermarry with  this result.  Judges 3:8  The anger of the Lord was kindled and raged against Israel, an dhe sold

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
