Gideon was a man of valour who, according to Judges 6-8, received a visit from Jahweh’s messenger, overturned the altar of Baal, saved Israel from the hand of Midian, chastised the men of Succoth, and finally refused a crown. He is merely named in Hebrews (Hebrews 11:32) among the ancients who wrought great deeds by faith, time failing the author to recount the achievements of all his heroes.
