Doing Deborah

In an attempt to reduce the level of off-topic conversation, I decided to take notes at this week’s meeting of Ærick The Cell (known publically as The Chaplaincy Cell). I thought that a further incentive to taking decent notes would be the publication of them on my blog (though, as with previous blog-related efforts, I have no idea how long this will last). I’ve amended the notes slightly in places to reflect my intent more accurately. Without any more ado:

Doing Deborah (hot)
  • Means `bee’, or `word’
  • What happens:
    • Deborah commands Barak, at the behest of God, to attack an oppresor, Sisera
    • He refuses to do so unless accompanied by Deborah
    • The honour wil not be Barak’s (it will be a woman’s)
    • They go
    • They attack
    • Sisera’s men panic
    • A rout
    • Sisera escapes on foot
    • Helped by Jael, who later betrays and kills him
    • Sisera delivered into the hands of a foreign woman with no real motivation for killing him
How does God subvert expectations?

Examples: Jesus, the hobbits in The Lord Of The Rings, Jews in concentration camps, Paul, Peter, the Focus satanist (Ravi Holy)
