Judges 13-14

Things To Consider

  1. We meet Manoah but his wife remains nameless.
  2. She believes and is obedient.
  3. It took Manoah a while to see things clearly with his wife and with the angel.
  4. Manoah's fear is for himself and his wife fears the Lord.
  5. The assumption would be that Samson would be an obedient servant with such an incredible story and the Spirit stirring in him.
  6. God used Samson in spite of his failings.
  7. Weakness is emerging in patterns of disobedience.
