Judges 4-5
February 23, 2014
Judges Old Testament

When the Israelites were oppressed by their enemies due to their own sin, God raised up Deborah to be judge-the only woman judge. Through her oversight and leadership, Israel experienced victory over the Canaanites and enjoyed 40 years of peace. But it was another woman-Jael-who is credited with a great victory when she single-handedly killed the Canaanite general named Sisera. Find out in today’s study how Sisera is a picture of our own flesh, and how we must also be willing to put to death some things in our lives.
