Yoel ben Shlomo – Light of the Prophets – Judges 14:1-15:20

Did Samson break Torah by taking a Philistine wife? How about when he ate honey from the carcass of a lion? Did he break his Nazarite vow by drinking wine? Would he have sinned by taking back his wife or by taking her sister? Also, what does it mean when Samson attacked the Philistines “hip & thigh”?

    Jacob marrying sisters has been my argument against a knowledge of Torah prior to Sinai. Also, did not Abraham marry his sister which Torah also forbids? (Gen 20:12 And moreover she is indeed my sister, the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and so she became my wife. JPS) If the Torah was known at the time of the Patriarchs, then they would have been in open rebellion against the Most High. Perish the thought. Thank you Yoel for bringing this out.

  2. Rick Winkler says

    Also, I had always thought of Samson as a man of great stature and strength in the manner of Cecil B. DeMille’s Samson and Delilah which starred Victor Mature as Samson (1949). The idea of Samson as an unimposing figure who performed amazing feats because “the spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him” (JPS Jdg 14:6) is an attractive one. Thanks for the food for thought.

    I feel so Blessed since finding the Torah Pearls and now these teachings. I searched within the churches, seeking, asking questions. I wondered was I the only one who had Israel through out my Bible. They spoke not of Israel. Thank you for being here, with the truth. Praises to you all for showing me the narrow path. Shalom
