Chapter 4: Rejection Of The King

Series Dates: 
November 3, 2013 - December 1, 2013

As the people of Israel entered the promised land, they entered as one nation under God.  This was a true theocracy with God as their King.  As long as Joshua and the other elders lived, Israel followed Yahweh.  But the book of Judges quickly reveals what happens when everyone does what is right in their own eyes.  Recurring cycles of rebellion and repentance finally came to a head when Israel, wanting to be like all the other nations, demanded an earthly king.  God's words ring with poignancy , "they have rejected me from being king over them." (1Sam 8:7)
