Are you a fan of ‘The Big Valley?’
My husband and I are regular viewers. Today, we hear a great deal about reality TV. Though it’s not easy to discuss, it is reality. Numbers of children, then and now, are labeled ‘illegitimate.’ Heath Barkley (Lee Majors) was not Victoria Barkley’s son by birth. In time, Heath was accepted by the Barkley’s.
I introduce Jephthah. The Bible is always relevant.
“Now Jephthah the Gileadite was a mighty man of valor, but he was the son of a harlot; and Gilead begot Jephthah. Gilead’s wife bore sons; and when his wife’s sons grew up, they drove Jephthah out, and said to him, ‘You shall have no inheritance in our father’s house, for you are the son of another woman.’ Then Jephthah fled from his brothers and dwelt in the land of Tob; and worthless men banded together with Jephthah and went out raiding with him.
It came to pass after a time that the people of Ammon made war against Israel. And so it was, when the people of Ammon made war against Israel, that the elders of Gilead went to get Jephthah from the land of Tob. Then they said to Jephthah, ‘Come and be our commander, that we may fight against the people of Ammon.’
So Jephthah said to the elders of Gilead, ‘Did you not hate me, and expel me from my father’s house? Why have you come to me now when you are in distress (Judges 11:1-7 NKJV).”
The reality, God empowered Jephthah… “Then the Spirit of the Lord came upon Jephthah (Judges 11:29a NKJV).”
