Wednesday Morning Bible Study – Spring 2022

     The Book of Judges contains a diverse collection of stories set in the 13th and 12th centuries BCE.  In this period, the twelve tribes of Israel formed a very loose confederation.  These tribes, along with various Canaanite tribes occupied the inland hill-country of what is Modern Israel.  People known as “Philistines” dominated the coastal region.  The Philistines made frequent forays into the hill country.  The main thing unifying the tribes of Israel during this turbulent period was the fact that they shared a common deity — Yahweh.

     The tribe of Dan occupied the northern-most portion of the hill country.  This tribe seems to have been surrounded by hostile Philistines.

     The colorful stories of Samson give us some insights into life during that chaotic period.

     The Wednesday Morning Bible Study group meets from 10:30 am to 12n in the parish hall.
