Brick Testament - Israel’s first king: Abimelech

Wednesday, May 18th, 2005 - 4:46 pm PDT

The Brick Testament website continues its illustration of the Book of Judges this week with three new stories recounting the harrowing tale of Abimelech, the first king of Israel, plus a bonus story about Tola and Jair, the less- than-famous fifth and sixth judges of Israel. So if you’ve ever wondered just how God would react if you slaughtered sixty-nine of your half-brothers, or in what convoluted way a whole society would be punished for worshipping the wrong deity, these stories will most certainly contain some invaluable wisdom for you to consider.
