The Judges served for about 365 years (1244 to 879 BCE, according to traditional chronology), from the death of Joshua until the time of King Saul. They served as Judges, as military leaders when the nation was under threat, and as spiritual leaders.

The Book of Judges records those events in which some of the ancient Israelites began to sin (Judges 2:11), and were then persecuted by surrounding nations, as God had warned them (Deuteronomy ch.32). When the Israelites repented (Judges 2:1-4, 3:9, 3:15, 6:6, 10:10), God saved them from their enemies.

The Judges:

  • Othniel
  • Ehud
  • Shamgar
  • Deborah
  • Gideon
  • Abimelech
  • Tola
  • Yair
  • Jepthah
  • Ibzan
  • Elon
  • Abdon
  • Samson
  • Eli
  • Samuel
In addition to the above, there have been regular judges, from the time of Moses (Exodus ch.18) down to this day. These are Torah-scholars whose function is to adjudicate disputes according to Torah-procedure.
