Judges 13 – Samson

As we are given the birth announcement of Samson, we find that he is born into a period in history when the Israelites continue to do what is right in their own eyes. The people, then, like today are powerless to change themselves or be saved. So then, like today, God takes the initiative and promises a saviour, born as a bay who would rescue his people. Samson’s salvation is partial but points forward to the true saviour Jesus.
