Growup: Day 71

Judges 18-19

The events that take place in Judges 18 and 19 will drive the narrative to a close in chapters 20 and 21.

Both episodes begin with the same mantra:

In those days Israel had no king.

What transpires in chapter 18 is an intriguing battle account as the last tribe to settle takes land for themselves. The intriguing thing is that the gods who go in with them are, well, false gods.

Chapter 19 is downright shocking. You want to turn your head in horror.

It’s hard to know what to do with these accounts. But it seems the line that opens these episodes must have something to do with it:

In those days Israel had no king.
