Edwards on Samson

Edwards on Samson October 3, 2003

In his Miscellanies , Edwards has some fascinatingly positive things to say about Samson. For example:

In Judg xvi. 1, 2, we have an account how Samson loved a harlot, and from his love to her exposed himself to be compassed round by his enemies. So the prophecies represent the Messiah as loving a sinful people, and from love seeking such a people to be his spouse, as that which occasions his suffering from his enemies.

Later Samson was betrayed by “Delilah, his false spouse or companion,” as Jesus was.
