5 - Samson

Series: A Faithful God for a Faithless People



March 22, 2021 | The Rev. Canon Dr. Jonathan Bailes

    Samson's story caps this series of flawed and tragic heroes in Judges. Though the model of a born leader, Samson scorns his calling and seeks nothing more than his own gratification. God remains faithful, despite Samson's failings, as we learn the difference between deliverer we want and the deliverer we need.

    Series Information

    Judges isn’t just a tragedy of the faithlessness of God’s people, but also a startling account of the faithfulness of God, who refuses to abandon His people even when they are at their very worst.
