More About He Gave Them Judges by Luke Walker
Seven elite warriors, seven foreshadows of Christ... Judges is action-packed, and among the most exciting books of the Bible to read. And yet, for all the well known characters and stories, much of its rich Christological nature is missed. But Christ is here, lurking in the shadows. This book takes up seven of the judges and explores their nature as types and shadows of the Lord Jesus Christ and his saving work. Endorsement from Dr. Richard Barcellos: "My friend Luke Walker has written a wonderful book for pastors and the people they lead, as well as for unbelievers. The subtitle, Jesus in the Book of Judges, tips readers as to the direction of the discussion. Walker finds aspects of our Lord's person and work prefigured in the persons and actions of the Judges, and I think he is right to do so. One of the many treats of this book is the vignettes into the hermeneutical method utilized throughout. Viewing the Old Testament as God preparing the world for the incarnation, sufferings, and glory of the Son of God, this book helps readers understand not only that God prepared the world for Christ but how. Historical figures and their acts often point beyond them to a much greater figure and his much greater acts. The historical figures and some of their acts pointing to the future find their terminus or target in our Lord Jesus Christ. Christ is the bull's eye of Holy Scripture, everything in it pointing to Him (the OT) or explaining the fact that He has come (the NT). The end of the biblical narrative is much better than its beginning and middle, but the end is hinted at all along the way in persons, places, institutions, and events. I highly recommend 'He Gave Them Judges.'" Richard C. Barcellos, Ph.D. Grace Reformed Baptist Church, Palmdale, CA Author of "Better than the Beginning: Creation in Biblical Perspective"
