The Book of Judges, Part I
Lecture no. 13 from the course: The Old Testament
Taught by Professor Amy-Jill Levine | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
In essence a large type scene of apostasy, punishment, repentance, and rescue, Judges ultimately spirals into idolatry, rape, and near genocide. Yet this deep tragedy is leavened by high comedy, which this lecture introduces even as it raises historical, theological, and moral questions.
