Tonight Laura and I were watching Bible Battles on the History Channel and they talked about the story of Jael. If you don’t know who Jael is, she is a character mentioned in the Book of Judges in the Hebrew Bible, as the heroine who killed Sisera to deliver Israel from the troops of king Jabin.
She invited Sisera into her tent and offered him milk. As soon as he fell asleep, Jael sneaked up on him, holding a tent peg and a mallet. She drove it through his temples so hard that it entered into the ground below.
This is just one of the many crazy stories mentioned in the Bible. If you want to learn more, open up the Bible and read the Old Testament. You will be surprised at what you find.
