A Series through 1 Samuel
From the tumultuous days of the judges to the tragic death of Israel’s first king, the book of 1st Samuel recounts a critical period in the
history of God’s people. Named after the prophet who plays a central role in its story, Samuel was unique from conception, and served as
God’s chosen instrument for the conclusion of the judges and the appointments of the first two kings of Israel. Given King David’s
significance – Jesus would come from his line – a grasp on God’s work in 1st Samuel is necessary for understanding the gospel of Jesus
Christ today. And just as Saul, David, and all Israel were to obey God’s Word, by grace we too must do the same. May this true epic tale be
used by God to that end.
