Timeline of Truth: Samson, the Selfish Judge – The Birth of Samson (Judges 13:1-25)

Timeline of Truth: Judges

Samson is the last in the cycles of Judges, and the lowest judge with regard to his conduct. Samson’s account starts out with his supernaturally announced birth to his then barren mother. Though Samson ends up living for himself through his life and even his death (as we will see in future lessons), God still works through this rescuer to keep the nation of Israel on course to fulfill God’s promises. God reigns, and works even through imperfect and immoral leaders.

Jesus Corrects the Disciples’ View of Children (Luke 18:15-17)

Much of the world now sees children as a bother – a distraction from our passions and pursuits.  Even the Church is deeply immersed in this viewpoint. The disciples acted on the basis of this view. Jesus – greatly troubled by this – indicates that this anti-child view is 180 degrees off from what is true. Children are to be allowed and encouraged participate, and all people can only enter the kingdom if they become as little children. Children are not a distraction from the Gospel – they are the very illustration of what is required to embrace the Gospel. This has clear implications regarding the need for salvation and the simplicity of salvation. Have you become as a little child, simply believing the truth of our Sin-bearer, Jesus?

Will the Bible be your authority regarding the very basis of marriage, gender, children, society, and the Church?

Mark 10:2-9 The Pharisees came and asked Him, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?” testing Him. 3 And He answered and said to them, “What did Moses command you?” 4 They said, “Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce, and to dismiss her.” 5 And Jesus answered and said to them, “Because of the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. 6 “But from the beginning of the creation, God `made them male and female.’ 7 `For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, 8 `and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9 “Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
