Othniel ben Kenaz
Caleb’s half-brother and son-in-law. First of the Judges, a renowned scholar who judged the Israelites for forty years (1228-1188 BCE) following Joshua’s passing. At that time, the Israelites lacked leadership and fell prey to the Aramite king, Cushan-Rishathaim. Othniel successfully liberated the Israelites from this oppression.
