How many Judges where military leaders?

The role of the Judges in Israel.

Thanks for asking a question on thisisyourbible.com

Virtually all of them were military leaders in some sense. Deborah was a judge and a prophetess and hadinput into military matters with her co-judge Gideon.

Arguably, Samuel was the last judge and was exclusively in the role of a prophet and not that of a military leader.

Some of the Judges such as Tola, Jair, Ibzan, Elon, and Abdon have no military feats recorded in their histories. However, they would have been responsible for the defense of Israel.

I hope you have found this helpful.

God bless,
Mike
