The Story of Samson
Samson was a mighty man, who performed many great deeds by the power of the Holy Spirit. Yet Samson had a great moral weakness: an eye for beautiful women who did not belong to the line of faith. Samson married Delilah, who betrayed him to his Philistine enemies for silver. He was taken into bonds, blinded, mocked and scorned. But in the end, Samson got revenge for his suffering. At the festival of the Philistine god, Dagon, Samson positioned himself between the two central pillars of the temple. Accepting death, he stretched out his arms to either side between the two columns, and collapsed the temple, killing 3000 Philistines. Discover how the mighty deeds of Samson point us to the even mightier works of the Lord Jesus, who experienced suffering very similar to Samson’s, but who, unlike Samson, stretched out his hands upon the cross for the salvation of many!
