PS - our early priests even linked Samson to '60,' which makes sense when the astronomy I've outlined is taken into account. The Babylonian Talmud contains,

Quote:
It has been taught: R. Simeon the Pious [about 100 AD] said: The width between Samson’s shoulders was sixty cubits, as it is said: And Samson lay till midnight, and arose at midnight and laid hold of the doors of the gate of the city, and the two posts, and plucked them up, bar and all, and put them upon his shoulders; and there is a tradition that the gates of Gaza were not less than sixty cubits [in width]…
This indicates the priests almost two-thousand years ago may have had a dim memory of the story's foundation. Wikipedia states,
Quote:
In the Talmudic period, some seem to have denied that Samson was a historical figure, regarding him instead as a purely mythological personage. This was viewed as heretical by the rabbis of the Talmud, and they attempted to refute this.
I have not gone down that rabbit hole. I was satisfied with figuring out the astronomy.

Best wishes!
