Study 6 From the Book of Judges is: Judges 6

The Midianite oppression took the form of an annual invasion (for seven years, 6:1) of hordes of semi-nomads from Trans-Jordan. This is the first indication of the use of the camel in warfare (6:5) which gave the Midianites an immense tactical superiority. The effect upon Israel is described in verses 2, 4 and 6.
  1. When the people cried unto the Lord, what was His first answer? See verses 7-10, and cf. 2:1, 2; Ps. 81:8-11; Ho. 11:1-4,7.
  2. Gideon was called to deliver Israel from the Midianites. But first he must make a stand for God in his own house (verse 25-32). Has this a bearing upon your Christian service? Cf. 2 Tim. 2:19, 21; Mk. 5:18, 19; Acts1:8.
  3. By what three visible signs did God strengthen Gideon’s faith? Consider what these signs would teach Gideon.
