Judges 4 & 5 The episode of Devorah the Prophetess. We open by exploring the role of the feminine in ancient Israel and how that role was influenced by the surrounding Canaanite culture. Barak, the general, and his war against the forces of Sisera. But wait! The Bible does not tell the whole story! There seems to be something significant left out! We turn to the ancient Roman/Jewish historian Josephus to learn about a bizarre meteorological event that helped Barak's army defeat Sisera. We also learn that there was overt extraterrestrial help in this battle, and when the inhabitants of some other planet called Meroz refused to lend their higher hand to fight for Israel on Earth, they are cursed by God's angel for it. This understanding is clearly based in classical Torah literature. What seems to be a simple tale turns out to conceal within it some very strange and possibly disturbing revelations.
