I have a number of questions concerning the Book of Samson:
Judges Ch 4:14 "
But his father and mother did not know that it was of the Lord that he was seeking an occasion to move against the Philistines. For at the time the Philistines had dominion over Israel
." Comes straight after the verse, "
..And Samson said to his father; Get her for me for she pleases me well.
" Does this mean that God wanted him to take a woman of Timmnah as a wife in order to defeat the Philistines although this is taken against Samson as him seeking his lustful desires? Or is it that God wanted him to use His spirit against the Philistines in general but he misused it in the process of going down to Timnah?
Chapter 16:30, when Samson said, "
Let me die with the Philistines!
", was he intending to commit suicide? But his name is mentioned among the saints in Hebrew 11. How could this not be suicide?
Samson killed 300 people before dying. Is that not similar to suicide boming?
