Judges 7-9: Gideon and Abimelech

The Bible tells one big story of redemption. Today, we are journeying through Judges 7-9 and exploring how it points to Jesus, where it fits into the story of Scripture, and how the truth of God's Word impacts our lives.

Follow along with us in the Story of Redemption Study Vol. 1, today on page 162.


  • Scholars hold different interpretations on Gideon's actions in Judges 8:1-32. Some believe Gideon was operating without the Lord's blessing, while others believe Gideon was doing what God had commanded. (Judges 7-9: 01:29)
  • Scholars also disagree if Gideon's words of denouncing kingship were humble or not. While Gideon's actions in these verses possibly demonstrate disobedience, the text does not specifically say that Gideon turned away from the Lord. (Judges 7-9: 01:43)
