Passage: Read Judges 17-21
Introduction: The death of Samson concludes the accounts of the twelve judges and the history of the people of Israel under their leadership. The last five chapters of the book recount two incidents which provide typical examples of what life was like in Israel at the time of the Judges. The closing chapters reveal the deep effects sin can have when God's people disobey His instructions and forget about His grace and mercy. Chapters 17 and 18 deal with the religious and spiritual chaos in Israel, focusing on the problem of idolatry. Chapters 19-21 focus on the moral chaos, which is the result of Israel's spiritual unbelief.
