Caught Between a Vow and Hard Place
How many times have you read Judges Chapter 11, the story of Jephthah and the offering of his daughter, and wondered how in the world such a story could be in the Bible? Do you know the outcome of the story? Did he really offer her as a burnt offering sacrifice to Yehovah God? Did he merely offer her as a "bondservant" to God, similar to what Hannah did in the book of 1st Samuel? This lesson dives into Judges Chapter 11 and spends over an hour talking about the Levitical (and other) aspects of the vow and comes to a dramatic conclusion about this lesson. If you have ever had any questions about this chapter, please review this lesson.
