The book of Judges is a book of saviors and of judgments. Israel's leaders were supposed to save Israel from their sinful enemies in the Promised Land. But as the book goes on Israel's saviors, and Israel herself, get worse and worse. Ultimately, these saviors are ironic judgments. They are Israel's sin reflected in their leadership until finally, there are no saviors left. But Jesus comes as the final leader who both saves us from our enemies and from God's judgment.
