Fall 2023 Study:
1 Samuel- "Character Stories"

A study of God through the book of 1 Samuel.

Over the past few years, we've looked at the story of the Israelites and how God brought them into the Promised Land to live in relation with him. But by the end of the book of Judges, the Israelites had become corrupt and divided... and desperately in need of a leader.

Not just any leader, though. Israel needed a king.

Our study of the book of 1 Samuel will look at the rise of the kingdom of Israel through the stories of its three main characters: Samuel, prophet and kingmaker; Saul, disobedient and unworthy; and David, faithful and courageous.

More importantly, we'll also see through them our own need for the true, godly kingship of Jesus.
