89: To Obey is Better than Sacrifice (1 Samuel 13)

In this instalment, King Saul makes a pretty big blunder when he decides to proceed with offering sacrifices before Samuel arrives. Why is this a big deal? Tune in to find out!

88: Saul’s First Victory (1 Samuel 11-12)

Saul cuts up some oxen and mails rare steaks all over the country, then leads a very strong force against the Ammonites. They pursue and obliterate the enemy, and Saul looks like he’s actually done something good. His very first act as a king is to mobilise the military and defend his people. Good on ya, Saul. I hope things always go this well for you.

87: Saul Chosen as King (1 Samuel 9-10)

Ryan is sick, but he powered through like a little champ. Saul is introduced, as a tall, dark and handsome type, and he is consequently chosen as Israel’s first king (again, against God and Samuel’s better judgement). Also, God apparently caused some donkeys to disappear so Saul would meet Samuel and be filled with the Holy Spirit. Alright.

86: Samuel Judges Israel, But Israel Wants a King (1 Samuel 7-8)

Sandwich artistry (and curation), Ebenezer stones, and Samuel is quickly disheartened as Israel wants to follow a man instead of their God. Come on, Israel! Get your act together! Did you know ‘We Wish You A Merry Christmas’ has a second- and third- verse? Figgy pudding.

85: Israel’s Catastrophic Defeat (1 Samuel 4-6)

Israel carries the ark of the covenant into battle under the false assumption that they will win if it is present…only, they don’t inquire of God beforehand. What results is a military defeat of catastrophic proportions, and the capture of the ark! Bad stuff all around.

84: Eli’s Awful Sons (1 Samuel 2b-3)

Hannah makes Samuel “little robes”, Eli’s sons absolutely suck at being humble, faithful priests, and poor Eli gets stuck with it all. Samuel gets called by God to become a lifelong servant. When the Bible says that Eli’s eyesight had grown dim, did that mean he had cataracts?

83: Hannah’s Humility (1 Samuel 1-2a)

Hannah was barren, like many other mothers of significant biblical figures up to this point, but that didn’t stop her from believing that God would grant her a son. That son, Samuel, would go on to be the final judge of Israel and anoint the first two kings of Israel. Her willingness to give back to God what was given to her is admirable, and she really sets up the theme to 1 and 2 Samuel. Let’s dive on in!
