Who could resist a glimpse into Samson’s diary — if he had kept one?
Not the judges at Pacific Lutheran University , Tacoma, Wash., who awarded first prize in the “Hebrew Idol Competition” to students whose video depicts opening the diary.
Students created videos to make Hebrew Bible stories relevant today for their class Religion and Literature of the Hebrew Bible.
Tony Finitsis, assistant professor of religion, said, “I’m humbled to say they came up with ways I never would have thought of.”
Watch them at the Pacific Lutheran University Web site.
