2.02 Power Couple Baal and Asherah

Today we wrap up chapters one and two of Judges. We learn about some characters we will see a lot of later including Baal and Asherah. We also learn about El and Elohim.

We see how successful the Israelites were in driving out the Canaanites (not very) and we see how faithful they were to the LORD (not very). Chapter two gives us a little intro into the rest of Judges, which we’ll plunge into with the next episode, picking up at chapter three.

Thanks for listening. Have a great holiday if you celebrate one. If you don’t, have a great holiday as well. Until next time, be strong and courageous. Have I not commanded you?

1.18 Division, Dan, and Refuge

Today’s podcast divides up the rest of the Promised Land amongstĀ the seven tribes of Israel who have not received land up to this point. We’ll find out which tribes got that primo real estate along the Mediterranean.

We’ll learn a little about Dan. Not Dan the Man, but Dan the tribe of Israel, and how he, or they, let that primo real estate slip from their grasp.

We then turn our attention to the cities of refuge. These were towns you could run to if you accidentally killed your friend before one of his relatives could kill you.

All that and more in today’s exciting installment of JoshuaJudgesRuth. Thank you for listening. Be strong and courageous. Have I not commanded you?

1.17 Land for Everyone

In today’s episode we talk about marrying cousins for some reason and we look at why Manasseh was so whiny.

Caleb and Judah have received their land but Caleb needs someone to capture a city, and his nephew arises to the occasion.

Ephraim and Manasseh, Jacob’s favorite grandsons, receive their land, but all of them, Judah, Ephraim, and Manasseh are having trouble pushing out the pesky Canaanites.

Thank you for listening and as always, be strong and courageous. Have I not commanded you.
