God chooses Israel’s leaders, who are often flawed in significant ways: one is found cowering in a cave when he is called to action, another slaughters his 70 brothers before being crowned and a third doesn’t know his own strength and resists efforts from all sides to control his impulses. The cumulative effect of these and other chieftains is a total breakdown of the Israelite social fabric and a transformation of Israel’s ruling paradigm. Together, we will explore these models for lessons they offer for our own times.
