Basic knowledge about the history of Samson
Also called basic knowledge, provide us with a solid foundation in all areas.
This also applies to the Bible. The basic knowledge of the Bible includes knowledge about:
- the acting persons,- the meanings of the symbols,- the many meanings of the terms,- many other linguistic means (techniques).
In this section they are learned. In order to understand the allegory, the story behind the story, well, we acquire the necessary prerequisites. Simson's narrative also has other levels of meaning, which we will work out together. We will go through everything step by step, without any hectic rush. A dictionary will be added soon. You will find all important terms translated and provided with parallel passages.
Puzzling is the most important means of understanding the text. I'm talking here about reliable puzzling. So don't: Pass! Or I'll hit you! (Saying of Silvia K., it means: You don't want to fit in? then I hit you.) We don't do that. We put all parts in the right place.
This happens in two ways:
We puzzle after the words. Where do we find the same term? Think about it and use the puzzle piece correctly.
Where do we find similar stories in the Bible? This work is more difficult. We must already know the Bible.
When we have put all the pieces together, we get a complete picture. A beautiful, shiny and lovely painting.
And now, a few words and phrases from chapter 14. They bring us one step closer to the mystery.
