Anyone that knows the story of Samson knows that he was blessed with incredible strength.  This was first revealed in the book of Judges when Samson and his parents went to Timnah to meet a girl that he wanted as his wife.  In the vineyards of Timnah, he was confronted by a young lion.  Judges […]

Quid Pro Quo
