I have asked the question before but I thought I would solicit your comments yet again. How is this guy anything more than a horny thug with violent tendencies? How is it that he is preserved in the canon as being a great leader of Israel? Can it really be that his sole divinely ordained purpose was to kill lots of Philistines (Judg. 14:4)?
What do you think?
UPDATE: The comments are going well. Please read them and add your own thoughts.
