Bible Wiki

A Judge in The Bible was a man or woman called by God to be a leader to the People of Israel following the events of Joshua's taking of the land of Israel. Often this leadership role involved saving them from their enemies, who would have their hand turned against them due to the Israelites' disobedience to God.

Often, they differed greatly from each other in how they rescued and/or led the Israelites, although each and every one of them had God's call in common.

The lives of the Judges of Israel and their various exploits, are accounted in the book of Judges.
