These twelve studies examine the biblical events depicted in the book of 1 Samuel. You will become acquainted with the high priest Eli, and his two wicked sons, Hophni and Phinehas. You'll meet Eli's young protégé, named Samuel, and examine his faithfulness. You'll get to know Samuel's mother, Hannah, and learn why the young boy was brought up by a priest in the temple rather than by his family at home.
You'll also be introduced to Saul, Israel's first king, and watch his sad decline. Finally, you'll meet Saul's successor, David, who stood in marked contrast to his predecessor. Through it all, you will learn some precious truths about the character of God, and see His great faithfulness in keeping His promises.

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."
