Samson and Delilah

Our sermon text will be Judges 16:1-22.  This text covers the infamous story of Samson and Delilah.  As you read through this text, consider the following questions.

1. Is there any evidence that Samson was married to Delilah?

2. What was the Philistines’ stated intention for wanting Delilah to reveal how they could overpower Samson?  Do you think they were lying to Delilah?

3. Why do you think Samson was hesitant to tell Delilah the truth about his strength?

4. What tactic did Delilah use that ultimately caused Samson to reveal the true way of subduing him?

5. Consider the implications of the words in verse 20b: “But he did not know that the LORD had left him.”
