    Good evening -

    The signifigance of the two chapters in Judges tonight is that they are setting us up for the next few books we will be reading. Notice the phrases, "In those days, Israel had no king," in 17:6 and again in 18:1. This is of great signifigance. Micah was a man in possession of idols, the Levite priest gives a false prophecy and backs it with the Lord's name. Israel was in a teriible state at this time.

    The historical signifigance is that the tribe of Dan had still not received their inheritance and still had the Amorites and Philistines to face before receiving such.

    In Mark, I really like the quotation of Christ in verse 2, "I have compassion for these people." It's another example of how "human" a Gospel Mark is.

    1Corinthians 13 is a great favorite of many people. Paul addresses why the Corinthian believers had received the gifts, why they were part of the Body, and what the crux of the whole church division problem of which they were suffering. They had it all, but if they did not have love, it was NOTHING. This chapter is possibly one of the most gorgeous pieces of literature in the English language. I don't think it even needs any commentary. It speaks so well of itself.

    May God bless you

    - Clint
