Judges 10:6-12:7 - Jephthah’s Vow: ‘Rash and Unthinking’ or a Picture of Something Else?”

Rev. Richard Bodini - March 3, 2013

Jephthah the Gileadite is a difficult story. This is in the Bible because?? I struggle with this story. I tried to find the grace? I tried to find the “this points to Christ” theme. I think I found it. What this story does do is to cause me to pray more fervently for this broken world. It causes me to remember the promises I have made and seek God’s and others forgiveness for not fulfilling what I vowed to do. What will this text say to you?
