Lessons From The Life of Samson (Judges 13:1-5)

Phillip Stuckey, August 25, 2019
Part of the Men of the Old Testament series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

The Bible teaches us the value of studying the Old Testament (1 Cor. 10:6, 11; 2 Tim. 3:14-15). One of the most interesting and complex heroes of faith is Samson (Heb. 11:32). He was chosen by God to deliver the people from the Philistines in the days of the Judges when Israel cycled through sin, oppression, and repentance (Judges 13-16). What are some lessons we can glean from the life of Samson?

Judges 13:1–5 (Listen)

13:1 And the people of Israel again did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, so the LORD gave them into the hand of the Philistines for forty years.

There was a certain man of Zorah, of the tribe of the Danites, whose name was Manoah. And his wife was barren and had no children. And the angel of the LORD appeared to the woman and said to her, “Behold, you are barren and have not borne children, but you shall conceive and bear a son. Therefore be careful and drink no wine or strong drink, and eat nothing unclean, for behold, you shall conceive and bear a son. No razor shall come upon his head, for the child shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb, and he shall begin to save Israel from the hand of the Philistines.”
