Discussion #5: Judges 17-18

Sparked by Rebekah’s recent studies on Judges 17-18, our hosts discuss these strange narratives (Micah, his personal priest, and the Danite migration) and their context in the book of Judges. The conversation moves to redaction criticism, the ethical ambiguity of some biblical narratives, and the puzzling “staying power” of certain traditions.
