Previously, we saw Gideon at his best: recognising his own weakness and relying on God’s strength to accomplish God’s purposes. The text before us now portrays him in a far less flattering light. We see a different saviour, who behaves in a very different way, with a very different motivation. These differences make sense when the writer reveals his hidden agenda.
