Today’s chapter in Luke starts the “Holy Week”, Joshua is finished, so we begin reading the first two chapters of Judges.
Luke 19 starts with the story of Zacchaeus ( a wee little man), then is recorded Jesus’ parable of the minas. One take home from that parable is: “Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds. (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)” Following that started what is called “Holy Week”, beginning with the triumphal entry. Seeing Jerusalem, Jesus wept over it and after entering Jerusalem Jesus cleansed the Temple.
Judges 1 describes the continuing conquest of Canaan, and the Israelites’ incomplete conquest of the land.
In Judges 2 God decried Israel’s disobedience, the author recorded the death of Joshua, and chronicled Israel’s unfaithfulness and sin.
