Most Likely to Succeed

Passage: Judges 13:1-25

Preacher: Derrick McCarson

Series: Judges: Defeat and Deliverance

Category: Family, Judges, Samson


There is more space devoted to Samson than any other judge. His victories prompted the writer in Hebrews 11 to record his name in the Hall of Faith (Heb. 11:32). He’s probably the most popular of the Judges, yet his behavior made him the worst of all. Sam’s story begins in Judges 13, where we learn about his miraculous birth. I can’t think of one Bible hero with a more promising start than Samson. He had a divine anointing, godly parents and a special destiny as Israel’s deliverer.
