July 15, 2023 | Judges: Not to the Strong, Part 2 (REBROADCAST)


This program is a rebroadcast from August 20, 2016.

Deborah, Barak, and Jephthah

This week, we are rebroadcasting part two of our series “Not to the Strong” based on the Old Testament book of Judges. Chris takes a deeper look at the lives of Deborah and Barak. You’ll learn from their story that in life we all need to be encouraged by other Christian friends and family in order to see beyond our own limited scope and to trust more in the Lord for His protection and provision in our lives.

To wrap up our series on the book of Judges, we turn our attention to Judges 11 and the story of Jephthah. Through Jephthah’s service to the Lord as Israel’s judge, we learn that oftentimes to obey God we must sacrifice something we hold near and dear to our hearts. Tune in for this meaningful study of Israel’s judges!

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: Mourning the Children of My Youth

While walking along the street in an ultra-Orthodox section of Jerusalem, Zvi could hear school children singing an old song that reminded him of a time when he sang that same song as a child himself along with other children, many of whom perished in Nazi death camps. He desired for them to lament no longer and to call upon the Lord and rejoice in His salvation. Praying for guidance, Zvi entered the school to talk to the rabbi and the children. Hear what happens in this dramatic reading from the life of Holocaust survivor Zvi Kalisher.
