practical hygene could be the reason. biologicaly it is known tht bees dont make hive near freshly dead carcasses so the lion would have to have been rotted and well into the decaying process. which just makes the whole thing kind of gross.

but samson is a unique case case he killed men as well but his terms were specific never for his hair to be cut. it seems Jah can atler different nazirites vows according to his purpose[/u]

No, I have a good friend named Quartus, a guy with really straight, oily hair that doesn't lock. It's longer than his shoulders, and he never brushes it. It tangles, but it doesn't actually lock.

I say [Ras B] he's made a vow to God and it's between himself and God. The closest thing to it is the Nazarite vow, but since we are under grace now and not the law it can't be fulfilled the same way, re. the sacrifices.


I don't have any problem with Ras B or any other brother consecrating his dread to God and never shaving it. That can be a very good thing for him. Anyone may make a personal vow to God. I will soon be making a formal vow of nonviolence, for example. Such personal vows can be very good.

I just wouldn't say his vow is the same thing as a Nazirite vow. Comparable in some ways, but definitely different.

Quote:
How about this, why did Samson not shave his head? He killed many, so he would have come into contact with dead bodies for sure.


I would suggest that's probably another way in which Samson's life was an exception from the Nazirite norm. Good question. Anyone know?

My thinking on this would be from a medical stand point... The means of killing in the times that Samson were not as efficient and death would rarely be instant. Likely he cut, slashed and stabed in battle and went on his way before the actual physical death taking place. Now he would obviously leave them in the dying process, but chances of him hanging out until the moment of death are not very likely... Now this is just my opinion. Not some grand theological fact that I am revealing, just an idea.

blessed love to all, Ini have com forward again-

1. dis discussion over whether paul was a nazarite splits off into two schools-
a. Ini think JonaGus said the definition of a nazarite was one who teks deh vow
b. a nazarene was one who hails from Nazareth


I did not say it. That was Blaminack. But it is true. The two are not the same thing.

Quote:
in Acts 24:5, Tertullus speaking to deh governor calls a paul a "ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes."


Christians were called Nazarenes in that time because they follow Y'shua the Nazarean, Y'shua of Nazareth. It was an easy way to identify them. There is a Protestant Christian group that uses that name now, in fact.

Who said it is an OT prophecy? Does it need to be there?

deh scriptures say it, yes it does if deh scriptures reference it.

And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.
Matthew 2:23
