4 Reasons You Should Preach through Judges
Judges is the worst book in the Old Testament. If not for the death of Christ, it would be the worst book in the whole Bible. It’s saturated with toxic events: genocide, holy war, slavery, and the oppression of women. This tempts some to think the Bible condones this book of horrors. Many have noticed that Judges isn’t merely bad; it gets worse and worse throughout. And by the time you get to the end, even Sodom and Gomorrah’s famed sins of Genesis 19, which resulted in God’s fire and brimstone, pale in comparison Israel’s sin in Judges 19, which is punctuated by God’s noticeable absence.
So why should you preach through it for your people?
