      Eglon vs. Ehud - Judges 3:12-30
      June 3, 2001
      Reflection on Reverend Ryan Kim’s Message
      Edited by Joseph Yosuk Lee
       

      In summary, there was an evil and fat Moab king called
      Eglon who inflicted misery and pain on the nation of
      Israel. However, the Israelite nation had a hero called
      Ehud, who also may have had a crippled right hand. When
      the left handed Israelite hero came to Eglon, Ehud
      killed Eglon by plunging a foot and an half length
      double edged sword into Eglon's fat belly. Ultimately,
      when Ehud killed Eglon, Ehud was able to free the
      Israelite nation from the tyranny of the Moab nation.
      This testimony is very similar to the King David and
      Goliath story in the book of 1 Samuel.
       

      This shows that God can use any weak fool to glorify
      God. (1 Corinthians 1:26-31) Ehud was weak and foolish. 
      He may have had a crippled right hand. Despite his
      weaknesses, Ehud killed Eglon without any difficulty
      because God gave Ehud a foot and an half double edged
      sword to kill Eglon. The double edged sword foreshadows
      what the Word of God can do to unbelief. (Hebrews 4:12)
      In other words, the Word of God killed Eglon because
      Eglon simply chose not to worship the God of the
      Israelite nation.
       

      Although Ehud did not die on the cross, Ehud's
      weaknesses foreshadow the weaknesses of Christ
      in terms of His humanity. When both Ehud and Christ
      became weak in the eyes of man, both Ehud and Christ
      shame the strong and the wise. (1 Corinthians 1:25)
