In this episode we further develop why we chose the title "Light from the Light" with passages of scripture such as Exodus 13:21, "And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night." and Psalm 18:28, "For You will light my lamp; The LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.". We also look at Psalm 119:105 which reads, "Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.".

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.
