Gideon lived during the time of the Judges, what you could call the Dark Ages of the Old Testament. This period of time was after Moses, after Joshua, but before David. God sent ‘Judges’, Avengers, Deliverers, to save his people out of the hands of their enemies. Gideon’s story stands out during this time in Israel’s history as a testiment of God’s faithfulness and power.
