After the end of the Book of Joshua, the Book of Judges opens with utter disorganization. Joshua is out of the picture, and the Land of Israel is a near battlefield. Amidst this chaos a few short stories rise to the surface: the truncated tale of Adonivezek the thumbless, the "all's-well-that-ends-well" anecdote about Kalev's daughter Akhsah, and a few attempts at conquest where our ancestors didn't get what they wanted.

Although Jews are the people of the book, there are many parts of the Jewish bible, the TaNaKh, we never read in services. The word TaNaKh is an acronym for the Jewish bible's 3 categories of books: the Torah (the five books of Moses), Nevi'im (the Prophets), and Ketuvim (the Scriptures).
