Gideon

Series: A Faithful God for a Faithless People

March 8, 2021 | The Rev. Dr. Jonathan Bailes

    The story of Gideon is often used to teach children about humility, faith, and courage, but the truth is that Gideon is flawed: a poor role model who seems to bring as much harm as good to the people of Israel. Gideon’s story shows us the relationship between idolatry and power.

    Series Information

    Judges isn’t just a tragic depiction of the faithlessness of God’s people. It is at the same time a startling account of the patience and faithfulness of a God who refuses to abandon His people, even when they are at their very worst.
