Lecture no. 10 from the course: Understanding the Old Testament
Taught by Professor Robert D. Miller II | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
Take account of the context of Judges, within the Old Testament books that reveal the story of the Israelites in the Promised Land. Assess different accounts of how the Israelites came to the land of Canaan. Then witness the violent cycle in which they fell into idolatrous behavior, then wound up in enslavement, followed by God sending them a series of charismatic leaders (“judges”) to free them.
