Transcript of Redemption: Samson

Redemption
Redemption: Samson
Who is God here? What does He do?
Who are the human characters in this situation? How do they respond to God?
Samson: he is a Nazarite who makes a lot of poor choices in his life, like taking a Philistine wife, or setting their fields on fire; but does follow the few rules God set before him. That is, until Delilah interferes. He does listen to God to an extent (following the rules) but does not otherwise live a very Godly life.
Delilah: Samson's second wife, who conspires with the Philistines to find Samson's weakness. She does not listen to/follow God.
Who are the human characters in this situation? How do they respond to God?
Samson's Parents: Israelites who listened to God and followed His commands after He appeared to them as an angel.
First Wife: Samson's first Philistine wife who betrayed his riddle to the Philistines. She was not a follower of God.
Philistines: the enemies of the Israelites, who followed their own pagan gods and not the one true God.
How does this situation foreshadow what God does through Jesus Christ?
Samson is a huge sinner, making a lot of unfortunate choices in his life. He falls because of his sins (giving into Delilah's temptations) and ends up in a really bad place. However, in the end he calls out to God and asks for forgiveness, so he is given a second chance to do God's will.
How does this situation foreshadow what God does through Jesus Christ?
How does God reveal Himself in this situation?
God first reveals Himself to Samson's parents as an angel because the mother is barren and cannot have any children.
Later in the story God's spirit dwells in Samson often and gives him strength, as long as Samson follows God's rules (drinking no wine and not cutting his hair).

God helps Samson free the Israelites from the Philistines as one of the judges. God cares enough for His people that He uses a loser like Samson, who makes a lot of bad choices, to help free the Israelites.
This foreshadows what God does through Jes
