Birth of a Maverick

Birth of a Maverick

Passage: Judges 13:1

Speaker: Dr. Steven Laufer

Series: The Good, the Bad & the Ugly

Category: Sunday Sermons

Keywords: family, apathy, ignorance

Samson’s story begins with a birth narrative, something unexpected in this rough world of the Judges. The birth narrative, however, speaks to God’s preemptive plan to deliver Israel through a leader that could potentially surpass all the others. The problem was that the family into which Samson would be born were generally apathetic to and ignorant of God. This environment would not be healthy for the parents, and certainly did not pave the way for Samson to achieve his full potential in God’s plan.
