What’s the Difference Between the Judges and Prophets of the Bible?

What separates the judges from the prophets, and could someone be both? Judges and prophets were specially raised up by God for specific purposes in times of need, whether or not Israel cried out for them. Judges were considered liberators and deliverers while prophets were God's witnesses who brought the word of the Lord to the people. Deborah and Samuel are examples of judges that were also prophets.

Discussion/Reflection Questions for the Judges of Israel Pamphlet

  1. Read Pg. 1 (Judges of Israel). Even with God's laws in place, Israel could not seem to stay away from idolatry or sin. They repeatedly strayed from God, even when their sin turned them over to their enemies. Yet God still sent a deliverer to liberate them. What does this say about God's character and will for us?
  2. Read Pg. 2-3. The judges of Israel came from highly contrasting backgrounds, some with tainted pasts. What does this tell you about God's ability and desire towards us even at our most troubled times?
  3. Read Pg. 4-5 (Time Line & Cycle Pattern). The progression of eras from patriarchs, to servant leaders, judges, and kings is clearly defined on this time line. Side by side with the cycle pattern in Judges, what can we determine about mankind's need for order and a ruler? Why do you think Samuel did not want to appoint a king for Israel?
  4. Read Pg. 6-7 (Map & Judges Q&A). The last question of the Q&A compares and contrasts God's relationship to his people between the Old and New Testament. Is the role of judge still needed today? If God's Spirit permanently fills God's people today, is everyone capable of fulfilling God's promises?
  5. Read Pg. 8-13 (Overview of 14 Judges). Reflect on the ways the Israelites cried out to God in their oppression. What are some ways we pray or cry out to God for help or deliverance today? Think of a time when you did this. How did he answer your petitions?
