One Month of Bible Lessons and Bible Journaling Ideas
Hi, I'm Robin Sampson.
This course covers the Judges era, which includes the book of Judges, Ruth, and portions of 1 Samuel. The Judges era is a fascinating and often neglected period. It mirrors today's church, so it has a lot of profound spiritual lessons for us.
I have taught Bible studies for 30 years and now I design Bible Journal kits to use with the studies.
Bible Journaling Options

Bible journal in a notebook or Travelers Notebook. You can do this by printing and cutting out images or creating pages digitally.

In-Depth Bible Lessons and Bible Journaling Ideas
The Book of Judges chronicles Israel's darkest time. The core passage in the book of Judges is "In those days, Israel had no king, and everyone did what was right in their own eyes." God instructed Israel to perform three things (Deuteronomy 7:1–5):
- Destroy all of Canaan's population.
- Do not mingle with the Canaanites.
- Do not worship the Canaanite gods
Israel falls short on all three counts. The violation of God's law and Israel's moral degeneration are both tragic.
Judges and Ruth paint two very different portraits of the Israelites. The book of Judges shows that any time God's people forget about the grace he has shown them, they will fall into disobedience. The book of Judges teaches readers throughout history that the darker the human heart, the brighter the light of God's grace. The book of Ruth teaches us that God's kingdom is developed not by power but by his Spirit. And how God, through Boaz and Ruth, provided for us a "savior" and "redeemer" in our Messiah.
In this study, you will learn of the agony of existence without God and the wonder of God's intervention. The chapters in Judges begin shortly after Joshua's death when he led the Israelites into the promised land. We see man's gross sin and immorality in Judges. We can see man's issue. This sin is occasionally depicted quite vividly, and it serves as a frightening reminder of how far man can fall when he acts without God and according to "what is right in his own eyes." Judges 21:25

THE 12 BIBLE ERAS
The Judges Era is the fifth of the twelve eras. Each of the 12 Bible Eras courses is designed to help you see the big picture of the Bible, seeing Jesus through both testaments. The sixty-six books of the Bible are one magnificent unified story about God's loving, striving pursuit of restoring His relationship with us, His children.
The Bible can feel overwhelming and confusing, and if you have read through the Bible there is still a chance you may see it as a series of unconnected stories put together at random. To understand this story you need the key.
The Key is Structure
This course will help you easily understand the structure of the twelve Bible history eras. Having this key will enable you to put the major men and women and events together in their proper chronological order, as well as to understand how Jesus is revealed as Messiah throughout both testaments. As we learn about each era, we will Bible journal using different methods.
Unlock the Treasures of God's Word
- Over twenty years ago I found the 12 Bible Eras system by Max Anders, a classic, simple-to-use guide to Scripture.
- I used Anders' book as a jumping-off place to write Bible lessons for my children so I could teach chronologically using the division of the 12 eras.
- It was awesome! We saw Jesus in every book of the Bible. All the stories combine as ONE UNIFIED STORY!
- Now you can take this class with a group and study one in-depth era study every month.
- The Bible is made up of 66 books written by 40 different authors from three continents who wrote in three different languages over a period of about 2,000 years. But they all tell one unified story easily studied in 12 individual historical periods.
- When you put the pieces together it is like a beautiful symphony.
- I looked at many other programs and continued using this 12 Era study because it made the most sense.
- Each class contains 4-5 lessons per week and can be completed in less than a month.
- Lessons can be completed in twenty to thirty minutes.
- Bible journaling the lesson can take 20 minutes to three hours depending on the methods you choose.
We have a huge Facebook group of wonderful ladies taking this class. You can fellowship, ask questions, discuss lessons, and share.
