Introduction: What makes a Biblical character attractive? By Prof. David Fishluv

Only part of the Bible's rich gallery of characters have been interpreted artistically time and again. King David is such an example. What is it about certain Biblical figures that repeatedly capture the imagination throughout the centuries? Why is it that Samson has been interpreted artistically more than his counterpart Barak Ben Avinoam? Is the attractiveness dependent on the centrality of the character in the Biblical world? read more

Prologue: The Bible as Theatre, by Prof. Shimon Levy

The Bible as theatre has been adapted into morality plays, mystery plays, and miracle plays in western and central Europe since probably the 13th century.

Samson: The Biblical Story, Judges 13-16

1 And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the Lord: and he delivered them into the hands of the Philistines forty years. 2 Now there was a certain man of Saraa, and of the race of Dan, whose name was Manue, and his wife was barren. 3 And an angel of the Lord appeared to her, and said: Thou art barren and without children: but thou shalt conceive and bear a son. read more

Delilah :A Story of Love and Deceit (Judges 16:4-21) by Elizabeth Fletcher  Read more

Epilogue: Samson's Rest by David Grossman

There's one moment in Samson's story – the moment when he falls asleep on Delilah's knees – where the entire story shrinks. Samson curls up to the childish, almost infantile, experience, without violence, frenzy, or urges that complicated his life and wreaked havoc. Of course, this is also the moment where his fate is sealed, because Delilah already seizes his locks and the blade, and the Philistines celebrate their victory outside. read more
