- MacArthur Old Testament Study Guide Series, Volume 6
- A Study in 1 Samuel
The times of the judges were turbulent days in Israel’s history, marked by a continuing cycle of sin, oppression, repentance, and deliverance. In time, the people of Israel decided they would do better under the leadership of a king, and they arrogantly demanded God provide them with one. Samuel, God’s anointed prophet and Israel’s last judge, warned the people that they would be getting far more than they bargained for—taxes, forced military service, wars, and oppression—but they continued to insist. The Lord finally provided a king in the person of Saul, and Samuel’s warnings came to pass.
Prophets, Priests, and Kings takes an in-depth look at the historical period beginning with the miraculous birth of Samuel, continuing through Saul’s crowning as Israel’s first king, and concluding with his tragic death. Studies include close-ups of Hannah, David, Jonathan, and others, as well as careful considerations of doctrinal themes, such as “Respecting God’s Anointed” and “Courage.”
This twelve-volume MacArthur Old Testament Study Guide series provides intriguing twelve-week examinations of the Old Testament. Each guide looks at a portion of Scripture from three perspectives—historical studies, character studies, and thematic studies—and incorporates extensive commentary, detailed observations on overriding themes, and probing questions to help you study the Old Testament with guidance from John MacArthur.
