The Big Picture

Judges 2:6-23

February 26, 2017



I.     The generation after Joshua did not know God. Judges 2:10



II.    The five stage pattern repeated in Judges. Judges 2:11

  • Stage one: Sin
  • Stage two: Oppression
  • Stage three: (Repentance)
  • Stage four: Deliverance
  • Stage five: Peace

III.  The path down: sin and oppression. Judges 2:11-15, 19-23



IV.  The path up: Repentance, Deliverance and Peace. Judges 2:16-18



Questions for reflection:

  • What does it mean that the next generation did not know God? What is the warning here for us and our children?
  • Why was idolatry so tempting for the Isrealites? How is there situation not too different from ours today?
  • Why do you think God's solution to the people's oppression came in the form of a judge rather than some other solution?
