Description

In this course Dr. Bruce Waltke expounds the books of Judges and Ruth with the aim of showing their meaning to Israel and their relevance to the Church today. These books cover the time when judges ruled the kingdom of God and the kingdom fell into anarchy. Amazingly, the writer of Hebrews celebrates these flawed heroes from Israel's Dark Age as exemplary heroes of the faith. The books' narrator, through brilliant literary techniques, presents this history and through enthralling biographies shapes the people of God. This course aims to analyse their techniques to let their message be inscribed on the listener's heart. Lectures include:

  • Introduction: Deuteronomic History
  • Hermeneutics and Narrative Theology
  • Introduction to Judges
  • Othniel, Ehud, and Deborah
  • Gideon
  • "Minor Judges" and Jephthah
  • Samson
  • Priests
  • Ruth
  • Ruth and Class Participation
