Why did the announcement to Samson's parents in Judges 13 differ so from tthe announcement to Mary?
Matthew 1:18-25 adds the announcement to Joseph, to the account of the announcement to Mary.
Perhaps I will learn something here as the answer seems so obvious to me. One was the Messiah --- the other not. One mom was barren and the other a virgin.
But I am sure you have something more in mind. Who was that angel for Samson anyway --- Gabriel??
As i recall he did not give his name. Another difference was that Mary and Joseph were not yet married, but Samson's parents were. There could also well have been a difference in spirituality between the two sets of future parents. Other thoughts?
Samson clearly did not show signs of spiritual magnificence early on. I would have given the parents a bit more just to let them put up with it. But they asked repeatedly how to handle the youth and got nothing from ????? Great nuances here.
