Scripture Reading

Judges Chapters 15 – 16

Lesson 10: Samson, the Fallen Judge

“Put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof” (Romans 13:14).

The account of Samson closes in the way Samson lived – a combination of triumph and tragedy – but he remembered the Lord at the end of his life, and the Lord restored his strength. How much better his biography would have read if he had always remembered the Lord and his need to trust Him for the strength to overcome his moral weakness! [1]

Questions for LifeGroup Leaders:


Note(s) to LifeGroup Leaders:

  • Please read most of the commentary to your LifeGroup. You may summarize it if necessary, but there is nothing wrong with reading it. If you are a husband and wife team leading, perhaps take turns reading to the group. There is valuable review of the Scripture passages and application for effective discussion. Use your LifeGroup members to read Scripture.
  • The “Making It Personal” section is not designed for group discussion. These are questions that you might use to conclude before prayer. They are questions that prompt personal conviction and application. Please use them at your discretion to help your group.
