In a time where war was raging thick, and trade had ceased, the highways deserted and pain ravaging the tribes of Israel, a mother in Israel arose. A mother who was both judge and prophetess. A woman who heard, who spoke and who called. Under her leadership, half the tribes of Israel were united in battle against a fierce, bloodthirsty war machine. The tribes of Israel and their leader Barak, had no problem with Deborah's leadership and the Godly authority which rested upon her, in wisdom they looked to her for help and for truth. This is her story, this is her legacy, and this is our lesson.
