Here’s what happened when Luke and his Poppop and Mommom, Bruce and Jan, read ‘Deborah’ together.


This is Luke, aged 9, at Williamsburg, Virginia

Luke wanted to know: Why did they need to fight Sisera and the Canaanites?



Bruce and Jan suggested: Deborah told Barak the Lord commanded him to take his army and go to Mount Tabor and the Lord would have the Israelites defeat the Canaanite king’s army, lead by Sisera. This would prevent them from treating the children of Israel badly. Since Barak would not do this without Deborah, she went and God defeated Sisera and his army. Deborah was recognized as God’s prophet.
