Much like the opening of the New Testament, an angel of the LORD visits a woman and tells her she will bear a child that shall be a savior. He'll also be a long haired hippie.
She is impregnated by someone other then her husband. The husband seems OK with the deal.
The angel gives her some very sound advice; don't drink wine and eat well.
The difference between Jesus and Samson? Jesus was a fairly peaceful man. Samson is a short tempered asshole, who first thought murder and mayhem.
Samson starts off as a petulant brat, insisting that his parents get him a (nameless) Philistine woman for a bride instead of an Israelite.
His hormones ragging, he kills a lion with his bear hands! Later the carcass of the lion is filled with honey which leads to a good meal and a riddle.
"Out of the eater came forth meat, and out of the strong came forth sweetness."
Samson's buddies threaten to burn his house down when they can't solve the riddle. Time to get some new friends!
His wife gives her friends the answer to the riddle, Samson is enraged and kills thirty random men (with the help of the Spirit of the LORD) to pay off his debt.
He kills, kills again, meets Delilah, loses his hair and eyes, kills again and dies.
Moral of the story? If you want to kill a ton of people, just ask The LORD to help.
I love (actually, I'm horrified) that every few verses of the Samson story deal with him killing and destroying, yet this is considered a "children friendly" Bible story. With A LOT of glossing over of course.
