Bible study 216 – Judges 6Posted: May 8, 2017
When the Israelites inevitably start worshipping Baal again they are enslaved by the Midianites, so God enlists the help of a Manasseh farmer boy by the name of Gideon. Gideon destroys his father’s Baal shrine, and points out to people that Baal didn’t strike him down for it. Then he gathers the Israelites for war, and receives signs from God indicating that he should attack the Midianites.
Then the angel of the Lord reached out the tip of the staff that was in his hand, and touched the meat and the unleavened cakes; and fire sprang up from the rock and consumed the meat and the unleavened cakes; and the angel of the Lord vanished from his sight.
