Week 17 - Samson the Strong -
Bible Time FUN Through the Bible
Kids Bible Lesson 17 - Samson the Strong

Welcome to week 17!

This week the children learned about Samson and the special strength God gave him.

Samson was special to God. God wanted Samson to deliver his people from the Philistines. God asked Samson not to cut his hair because Samson’s great strength was in his hair. Even though Samson was tricked and his hair was cut, God forgave Samson and still gave him the strength to fulfill his purpose.


While learning about the Bible story of Samson, the children learn that God made us for a reason and that we are very special to him. God does hear us when we pray, and all our strength comes from him.

Happy learning!

If you haven’t read the introduction to Bible Time yet, I recommend you read the outline about the Bible lessons for children first.

  • During story, draw attention to the key concepts for this lesson.

  • Don't forget to ask questions related to the story, for example, “Who tricked Samson into revealing where his strength came from?”

  • The girls saw how God can give us great strength and when we pray God hears us.

  • After the Bible story and discussion session, we stand up and do the interactive rhyme found in the Bible storybook

After the story and rhyme, we say a prayer that is related to the Bible story. You can either have your children repeat after you or allow them to come up with their own prayer.
