Jesus in the Book of Judges

Throughout the book of Judges, we see a repeated cycle:  Israel serves the Lord, falls into idolatry and forgets Him, becomes enslaved, and is ultimately delivered by a judge.  This book just goes to show that mankind, as sinful and depraved as we are, can not fulfill the law of God.  We need a true and better Judge, one who has delivered us from the bonds of sin and death.
