OUR BIBLE study today begins with the story of the original 300. Forget Leonidas–besides the 300 Spartans, he had about 7,000 other soldiers from elsewhere in Greece. Yes, he was still outnumbered 30 or 40-to-1, but Gideon and his 300 men were outnumbered 400-to-1 by the Midianites and Amalekites.
We also discuss the rise and fall of Gideon’s son Abimelech, some minor judges, and the stupid vow of Jephthah.
