Jael killed Sisera by hammering a tent stake into his head. Jezebel was thrown out a window, trampled, and attacked by dogs. Judas hanged himself. Death in the Bible is sometimes gory. Really gory.
But the grisly deaths and mass killings point to a final gruesome death on the cross and how God provides His Son as a rescue from eternal death. Readers learn about the historical and factual contexts of some of the Bible’s nastiest deaths and how God works in the ugly, messy world. Each chapter concludes with an explanation of the biblical event in question and how it points to Christ as Savior.
