Journal Through the Bible: Week 34 Wednesday

Judges chapter 6

Does God issue any commands in this chapter?

  • Through an unnamed prophet, God reminded them that He had told them not to worship the gods of the Amorites but they had disobeyed.
  • The angel of the LORD told Gideon to go and deliver the people.
  • God commanded Gideon to take his father's second bull to sacrifice it upon an altar built to the LORD.
  • Gideon was also commanded to tear down his father's altar to Baal.

Does God make any promises?

  • God promised to be with Gideon in the battle against the Midianites and Amalekites.

Does this chapter teach anything about Jesus?

  • This angel of the LORD might have been Jesus. Not only did He work a miracle at the sacrificial offering but He spoke to Gideon after leaving his sight.

Does this chapter teach anything about yet-future events?

  • Not that I identified.
