Here is a link to another story about Samson once again broadcast on UCB Inspirational (28th Feb 2015). However, while the last story looked at all the promise that never really found fulfilment in the life of Samson, this story looks at what we can learn about Jesus when we try and understand a short and rather odd story in the life of this man – who was after all a special gift from God to the people of Israel!

In this story there are great riches to be found about all that Jesus would do for us many years after the life and death of Samson so that we can see that in some ways and at some points Samson’s life was a prophetic life pointing forward to the ‘Real Saviour’ who was still to come.
