The Bible App for Kids Adds “A Hairy Tale,” the Story of Samson

“A Hairy Tale” is the newest story in the Bible App for Kids, and it’s available now! This tale of Samson comes from Judges 13–16 in the Old Testament. God gifts Samson with supernatural strength so he can lead his people to stand up to Philistine bullies. And as Samson’s hair grows longer, his muscles grow stronger.

Unfortunately, because Samson keeps using his strength to be selfish, he loses God’s favor, his hair, his muscles… even his eyes! But when Samson finally turns his heart back to God and admits his mistakes, God returns Samson’s strength to him — just in time to fulfill the purpose God had for him all along.
