Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Judges

Key Text: Judges 12:1-7 and Hebrews 11:32

Description:  After Jephthah’s defeat of the Ammonites and the wicked sacrifice of his own daughter, his troubles are not over.  He is rebuked by the Ephraimites and ends up fighting against them and over 40,000 Ephraimites die.  Israelite killing Israelite.
