What is a Mini-Series?
A Mini-Series is a small subset of lessons from a major series which covers a particular subject or book. The class numbers will be in reference to the major series rather than the mini-series.
On every side today we witness the erosion of the influence of the Bible in churches. Often, conservative churches who seek Bible teaching pastors find no one with the training and the desire to teach the Bible verse by verse, categorically, and systematically. Seminaries churn out pastoral CEOs more consistent with business models for churches and church businesses rather than shepherds who can feed the flock with Biblical nourishment to produce transformed thinking and transformed lives. As a result, most Christians are starving and do not know it because they have been so anesthetized with music, entertainment, political correctness, and motivational sermons. We are in a crisis. Fewer and fewer pastors have the ability or the desire to teach the Bible. Is there anything you can do about it?

Irresponsible Samson is up to his arrogant, selfish tricks again in this week’s lesson as he takes a Philistine wife and plans a feast to celebrate. Find out who is invited to his feast and the wager and riddle he presents to them concerning his experience with a young lion. Hear how the new wife gets the answer to the riddle out of him by tears and pleading and the disastrous results Samson pursues as he pays the wager. Recognize from this that although Samson is totally disinterested in spiritual matters, God is always at work using Samson’s actions to fulfill His sovereign plans.
