OT History – Part 10

Tonight we’ll be focusing on 1 Samuel 4-9 in the Old Testament Historical Books class (part 10 of 20 – half way there!).  We’ll look at the Ark Narrative, Israel’s demand for a king, and the meeting of Samuel and Saul. 

The notes for the class can be found here:

As a primer for tonight, I’ve challenged the class with the following questions:

  1. At the end of Chapter 6, ask yourself:
    • If you were a Philistine, what are you thinking right now?  How do you process this?  What are the implications of what just happened?
    • If you are an Israelite, what are you thinking right now?  How do you process this?  What are the implications of what just happened?
  2. Focus on 1 Samuel 7:2-4.
    • What stands out as significant in this passage?
  3.  As you reach 1 Samuel 8, ask yourself:
    • What do we make of Israel’s demand for a king?  Why do they say they want a king?
    • How does God respond (in general, and also specifically to Samuel)?
    • What stands out to you in Chapter 9 when Samuel and Saul first meet?
