If you are a fan of classic movies, as I am, it's difficult to forget the images of beautiful Hedy Lamarr playing the part of Delilah, in the Bible-based movie starring Victor Mature as Samson.
We're all familiar with the story . . . but let's refresh our memories of the passage:
We tend to forget a lot of Samson's story.
We focus on this section, and don't pay much attention to the rest.
We forget that angels foretold his birth to his parents. That they gave specific instructions as to her pregnancy, and the child's upbringing. That he was a judge over Israel.
We forget all that, because, well, Delilah is just so memorable! And so deceitful!
To prepare for this week's study, I'd like to ask you to read the thirteenth through sixteenth chapters of Judges. I know there's a lot there, but I think we'll all get more from the study if we are prepared. (Grin)
See you next time!
