The eleven men and one woman who judged Israel were true messiahs, real saviors, who served their generations by the will of God. As good as their work was, however, it was not complete. They defeated some enemies, but not all; and they ruled for a good long time, but not forever. If God is going to save His People once and for all, He's got to do better than Gideon, Deborah, or Samson! In Jesus Christ, He has done better.
