Today I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Manoah in Judges 13. Unlike so many other Biblical angelic visits and miraculous conceptions, both Manoah and his wife believed without hesitation. Manoah just wanted more information from the angel about how to raise Samson. When the angel returns, he patiently waits for Manoah’s wife to find Manoah. Manoah asks the angel’s name and the angel says “It is beyond understanding” or too wonderful to grasp the full meaning of it. The name of God—so awesome! Then, realizing he has seen God, Manoah panics, but his wife reasons with him.
