This was an easy week of lessons. I think I mentioned earlier that I am treating this section in Judges and Ruth like a biographical examination of some of the heroes (and losers) found in these passages of scripture. I am hoping these kids will see characteristics they want to emulate and avoid by studying these stories from people's lives.
We started out by looking at the maps section of the Bible. (Maps 2, 3). I talked about the Exodus (Map 2) and showed them on the map Kadeth-barnea. Then we talked about now (in Judges), the people have split up the land like in Map 3. Joshua is dead, and the people are being wicked again.
