After centuries of God ruling His people through judges, Israel demanded a king like other nations, thereby rejecting the Lord. So the Lord directed the prophet Samuel to appoint a king, Saul, who ruled according to his flesh even as the Lord was preparing another man, David, after His own heart. Learn how Israel moved to become a nation under a king and how the Lord used Israel's impatience to demonstrate the inadequacy of human rulers in solving the problem of the nation's sin and apostasy. In addition to telling the story of Saul and David, the book of 1Samuel introduces other well-known biblical characters in scripture including Jonathan, Mephibosheth and others.

I thoroughly enjoyed the study on my favorite book in the Bible after reading this many times over the years I am always amazed at the new layers I see in His word. I really hope you have a study for the book of Kings. Good work thank you so much!
