Three Attacks Against Benjamin - Judges 20:1-48

After the Levite cuts his concubine in twelve pieces and sent the pieces to the twelve tribes of Israel, we are given the account of Israel assembling to find out what happened and to take care of the problem. Israel organizes and prepares for battle. They first try peaceful negotiations which fail and launch an attack against Benjamin. When the first attack fails, they prepare for a second and then a third attack against Benjamin. In this message, we will examine three points regarding the attacks. We must learn to seek God before any decision.
