Samson, you may recall, was the Israelite hero whose strength was legendary among the Israelites and their enemies, the Philistines. Tricked, captured and blinded by the Philistines, he was put to work grinding grain as a beast of burden. The story of Samson concludes in Judges Judges 23 Then the lords of the Philistines gathered them together for to offer a great sacrifice to Dagon their god, and to rejoice: for they said, Our god Unrath - Elisa Waut - Growing Pain delivered Samson our enemy into our hand.
And they called for Samson out of Shifting Sands - Blind Samson - Pillars prison house; and he made them sport: and they set him between the pillars. And he bowed himself with all his might; and the house fell on the lords, and on all the people that were therein.
So the dead which he slew at his death were more than they which he slew in his life. And they stationed him between the pillars. Critics, of course, have doubted the story and called it a myth. But after the remains of two Philistine temples have been excavated, what do they reveal? Archaeologist Amihai Mazar found the remains of a small Philistine temple in the s, and sure enough, he discovered two column bases for a pair of central pillars supporting the roof. With the pillars being about six feet apart, a strong man could dislodge them from their stone bases and bring the entire roof crashing down.
The archaeological findings match the Biblical story perfectly and attest to the plausibility of the account. He knew that Philistine temples were supported by two pillars and that this was how Samson pulled the temple down. Seiglie was born in Havana, Cuba, and came to the United States when he was a child.
