Jephthah’s Vow

This week we’ll be using the six big questions for each reading. These are five questions that you can ask of any text in the Bible. They are a great way to begin the process of learning how to study the Bible and apply it to your life.

Passage: Judges 11 – Jephthah
Big Idea: Hasty vows bring pain.

Reading: Judges 11:1-11
Discussion: What stands out to you (or what do you like)? What do you not understand (of what do you not like)? What do you learn about God? What do you learn about people? What do you need to do in light of this passage? Who do you need to tell?

Reading: Judges 11:12-28
Discussion: What stands out to you (or what do you like)? What do you not understand (of what do you not like)? What do you learn about God? What do you learn about people? What do you need to do in light of this passage? Who do you need to tell?
Activity: Bible Scavenger Hunt: See if you can find in the Bible where this took place and if Jephthah was giving an accurate recounting of history (hint: the name of the book can be “counted” on).

Reading: Judges 11:29-40
Discussion: What stands out to you (or what do you like)? What do you not understand (of what do you not like)? What do you learn about God? What do you learn about people? What do you need to do in light of this passage? Who do you need to tell?
Activity; Kids: turn this passage into a skit or drama and act it out for your parents.
