ADULT BIBLE CLASS continues the series on the book of Judges. The Old Testament book of Judges is very contemporary for our lives today. A repeated phrase in Judges is: “Everyone did what was right in their own eyes,” and that phrase pretty much describes life in the United States today.

In addition, the book of Judges has some very interesting accounts, perhaps, the most humorous story in the Old Testament. See you in Bible Class!
