Today’s reading was about Samson. I actually found this to be one of the odder choices in our Jesse Tree book. I know that his is a well-known story, but as far as being part of Jesus’ family tree? Seems strange to me. It was a good story for foreshadowing, however, in two different ways. First, we talked about his relationship with the Philistines, and that being repeated with David and Goliath. We also talked about his vows as a Nazarite, and how he had that in common with John the Baptist. So, a useful discussion, but it took some work getting there.
