In this lesson, Dr. Bramson discusses the battle between the invading, powerful Midianite army and the tiny Israelite army led by Gideon. Who was “the angel of the LORD” who spoke with Gideon prior to the battle? Did Gideon know who he was talking with? Why did the Lord instruct Gideon to reduce his army from 10,000 to 300? Who was Purah? What caused the Midianites to be so afraid of Israel? What does this story tell us about Jesus in the Old Testament?
