For Judges to judge, there must be a standard against which all actions are judged. The Book of Judges is preceded by Moses reiteration of the Torah just before the nation of Israel proceeds into the Promised Land. The law, the standard of righteousness by which Israel is to govern themselves as a people, is repeated and amplified one last time before the death of Moses. It is in this final instruction of Moses that we find the context to the Book of The Judges, which is a prophetic shadow picture of the day and hour in which we live.

This week, the Bible movie Noah opened with a flood of media attention (pun blatantly intended).
It follows closely on the heels of Son of God, an adaptation of the life of Yeshua, the premise of which was borrowed from the wildly popular The Bible mini-series that aired on The History Channel last year.
And thats exactly why these movies are being made theyre wildly popular.
Which means they make money.
While its great to see Bible stories on the big screen, we have to remember that these movies are only being made because they present an opportunity to make money.
Bible movies are not evangelistic tools.
Case in point, Son of God never really gets to the point of who Yeshua was or why he came.
And the makers of Noah are very careful to point out that the screenplay is only inspired by the biblical account.
At one point in the movie, for example, six-armed Nephilim actually help Noah with the ark of course, that doesnt happen in Scripture.
But what do you expect? Its a movie!
It must be close enough to the truth for some people, however, because the movie is banned in Indonesia, a predominantly Muslim country.
The movie is also banned in Qatar, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates.
For the rest of the world, sure, its entertaining to watch Scripture come alive on a movie screen (pssst Exodus is coming to theaters in December in 3D).
But are biblical movies OK to watch? Thats your decision.
Be assured, however, that just as the truth is stranger than fiction, the truth is also a lot more entertaining and uplifting!
