The Angel of the Lord Visits


This week we’ll witness the Israelites falling into sin and disobedience as they fail to do what God had commanded them to do.  Read through Judges 1:21-2:5 and make a list of all the ways the Israelites disobeyed God.  Instead of driving out the Canaanites, what did they do?


Chapter 2 introduces a character which is referred to as “the Angel of the Lord.”  Who is this?  Notice the authority in which this character speaks.  Do you suppose this might be a theophany?


Verse 4 and 5 record the Israelites response to the angel’s message.  Would you classify this as a response of repentance?
