Shoftim Chapter 18- 12 Iyyar- (Wednesday May 10)

Shoftim - Chapter 18 with Rashi (English)
In Yehoshua 19 40-46 we learned the tribe of Dan wasn’t happy with their land. They said: “that there is this section all the way in the North that we want.” They went to go claim it. The people of Dan consulted this levi to see if they would win the war. Ultimately they won the war and adopted Micha’s levi as their own to establish idolatry up in the North.

[This is a likely proof that Shoftim is order thematically and not chronologically since this story would have taken place at the beginning of the era of the judges and not towards the end.]

Who is Yehonatan?
What message is the sefer trying to promote by being organizes this way?
What line is repeated over and over? Why?What role did this city in Dan have in the split of the kingdom of Rechavam in Melachim II?
