One of the trans-natural events given in the Old Testament is the report that Samson slew a thousand phillistines with the jawbone of an ass. This is strange. A jawbone of an ass could hardly kill a single Phillistine, much less a thousand. It is of the flimsiest construction.
The Old Testament is rife with double entendres and nuance especiallly when dealing with the foibles of Samson. He is shown as a boastful loudmouth hero who much liked his own press.
Yes, it is said in the Bible that Samson killed a thousand Phillistines with the jawbone of an ass. And yes, this year my own jawbone said that I broke eighty on the golf course almost everytime I took to the links.
Think. For two thousand years we good Christians have believed that Samson literally killed a thousand Phillistines, when all along, the Hebrews were just having a little in-house joke. :smack:
