Shamgar is not exactly a household name among 21st-century Christians. If regular Christians were polled and asked to name as many of the biblical judges as they could, Shamgar’s name might slip through the cracks for a good many of them. Judges, however, is a story of deliverance. The judges whom God provided were primarily deliverers. Shamgar was no different: “He also saved Israel.” And though his narrative is brief, there are some important lessons that we can draw from it.
