Samson’s downfall was the result of his own pride and disobedience, and yet, God used his death to begin the deliverance of His people. Jesus’ death was the result of His perfect obedience to pay for our disobedience. God used Christ’s death to bring deliverance “once for all” for His people.
God used an unexpected leader in Gideon and a small army of three hundred to rescue Israel from their enemies so that everyone would know that the victory belonged to Him alone. Jesus was the unexpected Rescuer who defeated sin and death to show everyone that salvation belongs to God alone.
