94: Saul HATES David (1 Samuel 18)

Saul begins to resent David, after the young upstart starts one-upping him. People seem more inclined to follow David than the (now-denounced-by-God) king, so the king is super bitter about it. He even tries to kill him a couple times with a spear, but David somehow evades him. David is also becoming besties with Saul’s son, so that complicates things further…

92: David, the Shepherd Boy (1 Samuel 16)

God reminds Samuel that Saul isn’t Israel’s rightful king, so he sends him out to meet Jesse and to anoint one of his sons as the next top dog. After passing over all of David’s older brothers, God chooses Dave, so Samuel pours oil on him. Dave also ends up playing the lyre for Saul any time “the harmful spirit from the Lord”(?!) torments him.

91: Saul Rejected as King (1 Samuel 15)

King Saul was a good king… for a little while. But what happens when he isn’t patient enough to wait for Samuel to offer sacrifices on his behalf? Is this the only thing he has done that has offended God? What is a dog-whisperer? For answers to all these questions and more, tune in!

90: Saul’s Rash Vow/Jonathan Eats Cursed Honeycomb (1 Samuel 14)

Jonathan and his armour-bearer make a daring attack from behind enemy lines, while Saul hastily swears vengeance on the enemy. This vow becomes complicated when Jonathan, who was not present to hear it, breaks it. Silly, silly Saul.

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!

77: Abimelech, Gideon’s Worst Son (Judges 9-10)

We all roughly know the story of Gideon and his 300 men, but did you know Gideon didn’t finish his life like a judge was supposed to? He had heaps of kids and thought of himself as a king. One of his 70 (yes, SEVENTY) sons, Abimelech, was a total tool-bag. He thought he would continue his father’s legacy by making himself king and killing everyone in line ahead of him. Let’s just say things didn’t work out too well for him.

54: Balaam’s Talking Donkey (Numbers 21-24)

What are “fiery serpents”? There’s a cool foreshadowing of the Cross, a king hires a dude to curse Israel, but he can’t help but speak blessings! What a crazy time. Oh, and a donkey speaks. No biggie.
