THREAD: And so from the heights of Luke 15’s parables (cf. my previous thread), we transition into the rather murky depths of Judges 17-21.

As usual, the aim isn’t to cover/summarise the whole text, but simply to pick out particular and sometimes overlooked points of interest.
(Note to self: Before you say something like ‘I plan to tweet my way through Judges’, make sure you’ve thought it through. You might reach the end of the Book and have to make good on your promise.)

So then...

Chs. 17-18 are some of the bleakest in Scripture.
Thus far Judges has taken us from the days of Joshua to the death of Samson--a period of some 400 years.

Chs. 17-18 have clear literary links to what precedes them (e.g., the mention of 1,100 shekels, the ref. to ‘Zorah and Eshtaol’, etc.).
