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.

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!

78: Samson, Master of Riddles (Judges 13-14)

The promised son to a couple of Danites grows up to be a bit of a thug (a holy thug…sometimes). Turns out he has a bit of a thing for foreign women, riddles and murder.

70: A Levite’s Concubine Cut Into Pieces (Judges 19)

During the time of Othniel, the first Judge, Israel is in a pretty bad spot. This story follows a Levite and his concubine as they are left to their own devices. What results is a pretty gruesome sign being mailed to each of the tribes of Israel. In this episode, Jeremy and Ryan get confused over the wording of the ESV, talk about soup and just how fallen Israel was, right after they settled in Canaan.

69: Othniel, the First Judge (Judges 1-3a)

Israel is beginning to spiral out of control following the death of Joshua. They’ve taken Jerusalem, but then they are oppressed by Cushion Man and his forces for a number of years. Who will God rise up to deliver the people? None other than Caleb’s nephew/son-in-law (don’t think about it), Othniel!

68: Micah’s Household Idols (Judges 17-18, 1)

Lithuanian language tricks, a guy gets a personal priest and worships idols, which get stolen by other Israelites and worshiped elsewhere. How the people have fallen! We lay the ground work before we talk about the first judge.

What do you think? Did we miss anything? Let us know! Ryan later finds out that Dan did not initially settle where he thought, but he doesn’t realise that this week. Haha.
