1 Samuel - The Coming of God's King (Page 3)

This book takes place around 1100-1000 BC, when the people of Israel were living in the Promised land but troubled by those around them, living in chaos and confusion.

The scattered tribes of Israel needed a king to deliver them from their enemies, unify them and to rule with stability & security. Whilst 1Samuel records how King David’s throne is established in Israel, it also points to the greater chosen King, Jesus Christ.
