The Book of Judges


Macmillan Co. 1913

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Originally published as part of the Bible for Home and School, Edward Lewis’ The Book of Judges exposition on Judges is a learned and solid exegesis on the text of Judges. Lewis divides Judges into three sections: an Introduction, the Main History of Judges, and a Conclusion. Further, Lewis argues that instead of an accurate historical of events that took place, Judges is to be understood as legends informed by historical events.

This volume is essential for students, scholars, pastors, historians, teachers of the Bible, or anyone studying the book of Judges. With Logos Bible Software, this volume is completely searchable, with passages of Scripture appearing on mouse-over, as well as being linked to the Greek and Latin texts and English translations in your library. This makes the text more powerful and easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or personal Bible study. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “donkey” or “Judges 14:1.”
