Judges Chapter 11 Summary Part 1
Judges 11 begins with a mighty man of valour named Jephthah who stands up to lead Israel against the Ammonites.
The Bible records him as the son of a harlot, so you can have humble beginnings and rise to greatness.
His story is that since he was born by a harlot and not in the house, his brothers and family kicked him out, not allowing him to have in on the inheritance that they were set to receive.
However, while in distress to the children of Ammon, Jephthah is sent for to help them war. They came to an agreement that if he leads them to war, upon winning when they return, he would remain their leader and rule over them.
Jephthah sends messengers to the king of Ammon to ask why they were warring against Israel. They cited that Israel took land from Ammon.
Jephthah, being a history major, recounts everything that happened from the time Israel came out of the wilderness until their current state.
