Judging Judges

My personal Bible study notes at the moment are centred on Judges and are driving me nutty!  On Jephthah we get a focus on how faithful he was and in regard to his foolish vow and his daughter's death 'at least they kept their promise to God' - great.  On the judges with 30 or 40 sons riding donkeys we get 'this is a sign of wealth' - yes, and...?

Judges is a complex and confusing book - something the note writer alludes to regularly -  but trying to find neat lessons from it is not helpful or useful.  I am hoping the next chunk, written by an Australian will be more inspiring and less simplistic.
