Period of the Judges

Hello! Today's reading in our Lenten Series Creation to the Cross: The Story OF God's people, BY God's people we hear about the period of the Judges from our history. At least for me I think its important to have the right image of a "judge" going into this reading, as if you are thinking about our modern day judges (civilized law do-ers in long black robes), the reading can be VERY confusing. Instead of that image, I encourage you to think about Silvester Stallone in the movie Judge Dread! Basically these Judges were the police, judge, jury, and executioner. This reading certainly doesn't tell the story of all of the Judges, that kept Israel on the straight and narrow (for the most part), but will give you a good idea of how our ancestors in the faith cycled through this time.
