Community Meditations


  • In what ways was the culture in the time of the Judges, much like our times today?
  • The Book of Judges is structured with a repetitive cycle. How do you see that cycle in life? In your life?
  • Revisit Judges 2:1-5. What do you see about God’s people? What do you hear from God?


  • The Book of Judges begins with conflict and ends in Chaos? How can we find encouragement in this? If this was the only chapter of the story, how would we feel?


  • How can you be a leader in the spheres of influence you have? What was it about the Judges that gave them their authority and victories? How do we have the same opportunity in our generation
