Painting of Battle of Gideon Against the Midianites

July 8, 2023 | Judges: Not to the Strong, Part 1 (REBROADCAST)

This program is a rebroadcast from August 13, 2016.

Ehud and Gideon

The book of Judges speaks directly into our culture today. Without strong leadership, both politically and spiritually, we can expect to see everyone doing what is right in their own eyes. This was the case in Israel as well, as the overall message surrounding Judges shows how the lack of spiritual direction and leadership in Israel produced an apathetic nature toward the things of God. Join Chris as he teaches on the book of Judges and shows us how God in His mercy heard His people’s suffering and sent these judges to them. 

After Ehud, leadership in Israel once again fell off the rails and with it went the people as well. As Judges 6 opens, the people of Israel once again did what was evil in the sight of the Lord and lost their way. So the Lord called Gideon to be a judge, or deliverer, for Israel. However, contrary to Ehud, Gideon needed some convincing that God was on his side. Join us for the full story!

Not to the Strong


Most failure among contemporary Christians is not caused by Goliath-sized problems. We are inclined to stumble when believing God and obeying the simple dictates of His Word are neglected. In Not to the Strong, Elwood McQuaid takes believers into the arena where their persistent foes are met.


Apples of Gold: Around the Corner

While visiting a market in Jerusalem, Zvi saw a large crowd gathered. He walked up and asked someone why people were there. A bystander explained that there was a man who performed miracles inside. Zvi boldly asked who gave this man the power of the devil! The bystander left and brought back a group of men who began asking Zvi questions. Hear how Zvi stood up to these men while also sharing the truth of God’s Word to them.
