The Law of the Jungle in Judges


We have reached Judges 19, a terrifying and awful account of how bad things had gotten in Israel.  D.A.Carson, in “For the Love of God, Vol 1” says “the law of the jungle has triumphed in the fledgling nation of Israel.”

Indeed, Judges 19: 1 says, “In those days, when there was no king in Israel….” and the passage grows more tragic and dark.  Unfaithfulness, deceit, gang rape, murder…

Makes me very thankful for God’s grace!
