The Judges Era Bible Journal Class
This course covers the Judges era, which includes the book of Judges, Ruth, and portions of 1 Samuel. The Judges era is a fascinating and often neglected period. It mirrors today's church, so it has a lot of profound spiritual lessons for us.
The Book of Judges chronicles Israel's darkest time. The core passage in the book of Judges is "In those days, Israel had no king, and everyone did what was right in their own eyes." God instructed Israel to perform three things (Deuteronomy 7:1–5):
- Destroy all of Canaan's population.
- Do not mingle with the Canaanites.
- Do not worshiping the Canaanite gods
Israel falls short on all three counts. The violation of God's law and Israel's moral degeneration are both tragic.
Judges and Ruth paint two very different portraits of the Israelites. The book of Judges shows that any time God's people forget about the grace he has shown them, they will fall into disobedience. The book of Judges teaches readers throughout history that the darker the human heart, the brighter the light of God's grace. The book of Ruth teaches us that God's kingdom is developed not by power but by his Spirit. And how God, through Boaz and Ruth, provided for us a "savior" and "redeemer" in our Messiah.
In this study, you will learn of the agony of existence without God and the wonder of God's intervention. The chapters in Judges begin shortly after Joshua's death when he led the Israelites into the promised land. We see man's gross sin and immorality in Judges. We can see man's issue. This sin is occasionally depicted quite vividly, and it serves as a frightening reminder of how far man can fall when he acts without God and according to "what is right in his own eyes." Judges 21:25
Bible Journaling: Physical and Printable
Through the eighteen lessons, we will Bible journal. There are several ways to do this. You can create a Treasure Journal, notebook, Memory Dex cards, or journal in a Bible. Robin gives ideas and videos to show you how.
What You Get:
- 18 In-Depth Lessons
- 8 Bible Journaling videos (2 per week)
- 4 Bible Journal Bonus Kits (art not included in the kit below)
- Optional Bible Journal Kit (twice the size of a Scrapbook kit, so it will last all month)
- Coupon toward the 12 Bible Era Subscription (coming in March 2022)
On checkout, you can choose to purchase the class alone or with the kit.
As we view each era, we will Bible journal the key people, major events, and a bit of geography. Beyond the history lesson, we will look at how you can apply the spiritual truths from the Bible stories into your life today.
This is a self-paced course. Eighteen lessons are presented over a 30-day period (with weekends to catch up) but you have forever access to the class. You can share your work in the Facebook group from any class. The schedule shows when the class will be posted, but you can complete the lesson and/or the journaling at your convenience.
You can Bible journal in your Bible, in a notebook, in a junk journal (once you add Scripture it becomes a Treasure Journal), or Memory Dex Cards. This will be explained more in the class.
You will receive Bible journaling ideas in every lesson. Here are some pages from the Exodus Era class.
