“A Love Story”
February 12, 2017
I. Reminder: the purpose of Judges is to prepare the people for a king like David. Judges 17:6, 18:1, 19:1, 21:25
II. Notice that Adoni-Bezek is taken to Jerusalem. Judges 1:7, 1 Samuel 17:54
III. Caleb promises the hand of his daughter in marriage to the one who conquers. Judges 1:12-13,1 Samuel 17:25; 18:29-20, Ephesians 5:25-27
IV. Caleb blesses his daughter with extravagant gifts. Judges 1:14-15, Matthew 25:34
Questions for reflection:
- How does this passage expand our understanding of who Jesus is and what He came to do?
- How does the passage expand our understanding of the relationship and standing that we have with Christ?
- If I believed I was loved by Jesus the way that Achsah was loved by Othniel and Caleb, what should change in the way I think and live?
