Judges 11:12-28 — Jephthah was brought back from exile to lead God’s people into battle against the Children of Ammon. Before entering the fray, Jephthah had a fascinating dialogue with the King of Ammon and it’s this dialogue that we study in this sermon.
Jephthah demonstrated a deep knowledge of Israel’s history in countering the claims of the pagan king and he serves as an example to us. We are reminded of the call upon our lives, as followers of Jesus, to argue for the truth. We are also reminded that the finer points of history really matter!
