I am reading about the judges in the Old Testament because a person made a comment about Elon Musk representing Elon of the Old Testament. Well, with a statement like that I had to dive deep into my studies about these judges. I believe there were 12 in all.
We are going to focus on Elud, the second Judge. When I read that he was the Second judge , I immediately thought this represents Jesus. But, as I dove deeper into my studies I realized that Eve is also in there too.
A little background into him.
Let us start at Judges 3:15.
15¶But when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, the LORD raised them up a deliverer, Ehud the son of Gera, a Benjamite, a man lefthanded: and by him the children of Israel sent a present unto Eglon the king of Moab.
Elud was a deliverer. Just like Jesus was. And please see that the Lord raised him up. Just like he promised Moses that he would raised up a prophet. A judge and a prophet are the samething.
He was a Benjamite. He was a man that was left-handed. I did see the importance of that until I read this note from my Dakes Bible:
All left-handed men mentioned in scriptures came from Benjamin. (Judges 3:15, Judges 20:16). Interesting statement.
This Benjamin was the son of Rachel and Jacob. (Genesis 35:18, 24). He served 80 years as judge.
Rachel upon dying called his name: Benoni, which MEANS: “THE SON OF MY SORROW”
But his Father called him BENJAMIN WHICH MEANS: “SON OF MY RIGHT HAND”
We have a name change right there. God changed a few peoples name in scriptures.
His name now means: “Son of my right hand” Jesus sat down on God’s right hand. Benjamin is showing the Gentiles. The true Christians of God.
When Rachel died she was buried in the way of Ephrata. Which is Bethlehem. Something about this puzzles me. Please read and study Gen. 35:19.
Thoughts and comments about this will be greatly appreciated.
