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.
2 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. 3 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. 4 Therefore be careful and drink no wine or strong drink, and eat nothing unclean, 5 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.”
