How Bad Can It Get?

Monday after Pentecost 18
October 5, 2009

The Lord be with you

This coming Sunday, Pentecost 19, October 11, the adult Bible study at Lamb of God Lutheran (LCMS) will continue its series titled “Puzzlers and Questions About the Bible” by considering a story contained in Judges. The “question” submitted was simply the biblical reference Judges 21:22. This is actually part of the conclusion of a story that begins with chapter 19 and demonstrates just how low the spiritual and moral nature of the Israelites had sunk by the end of the time of the Judges. This story is also how the book of Judges ends. We will discover that God has a reason for ending this book with this picture of moral and spiritual decline. We will have to cover all three chapters to get the full feel for what is happening in chapter 21, and understand what the Lord intends for us to learn, so don’t be late.

Blessings in Christ,
Pastor John Rickert
