1 Samuel: The Lives of Samuel & Saul - John F. MacArthur
The time of the judges were turbulent days in Israel's history, marked by a continuing cycle of sin, oppression, repentance, and deliverance. In time, the people decided they would do better under the leadership of a king, and they demanded that God provide them with one.
Samuel, God's anointed prophet, warned they would be getting more than they bargained for, but they continued to insist. The Lord finally provided a king in the person of Saul, and Samuel's warnings came to pass.
In this study, pastor John MacArthur will guide you through an in-depth look at this historical period beginning with the miraculous birth of Samuel, continuing through Saul's crowning as Israel's first king, and concluding with his tragic death.
Studies include close-up examinations of Hannah, Eli, Saul, David, and Jonathan, as well as careful considerations of doctrinal themes such as "Slaying a Giant" and "Respecting God's Anointed."
