"A Love Story"

February 12, 2017 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: Judges

Scripture: Judges 1:11–1:15

“A Love Story”
Judges 1:11-15
February 12, 2017




I. Reminder: the purpose of Judges is to prepare the people for a king like David.                    Judges 17:6, 18:1, 19:1, 21:25



II. Notice that Adoni-Bezek is taken to Jerusalem. Judges 1:7, 1 Samuel 17:54



III. Caleb promises the hand of his daughter in marriage to the one who conquers. Judges 1:12-13,1 Samuel 17:25; 18:29-20, Ephesians 5:25-27




IV. Caleb blesses his daughter with extravagant gifts. Judges 1:14-15, Matthew 25:34


Questions for reflection:

  • How does this passage expand our understanding of who Jesus is and what He came to do?
  • How does the passage expand our understanding of the relationship and standing that we have with Christ?
  • If I believed I was loved by Jesus the way that Achsah was loved by Othniel and Caleb, what should change in the way I think and live?
