In the last couple of years, I have learned a brand new lesson.
The whole Bible is about Jesus. No, I really didn’t know that before.
I used to think Old Testament stories were just moral stories we should learn from. Seriously. It has been very recent that I have been hit with the truth that Christ is revealed all through the old testament. So, I think it’s time to wrestle with some truth and discover some.
I was talking to my friend Erica tonight about how freeing and adventurous it is to know that everything in the Bible tells us something about Jesus—so if we want, we can take a random story and study it and pick all of the truth off of its meaty bones and learn more about Jesus.
I have decided to do that very thing with a good ol’ popular Sunday school character–Samson.
If you had asked me three years ago what Samson’s story tells me about God, I would have said “that God can make us strong.” But there’s so much more to that, and I’m setting out to find out what’s there. I’m going to blog my progress, and I welcome comments, additions, and comments about things you don’t agree with. Welcome to my journey through Samson!
