Ryan’s opinion about why he is here:

God’s deliverance is not dependent upon the cry of his people.

Remind the reader that God is working in more than one place at one time.

Why did the original readers need these stories?

  • Judges is a memory book.

What do the stories reveal to us and Israel? .

We need God to raise up an unlikely perfect, immortal deliverer who can righteously and eternally save all people and defeat the evil empires of the world.
