Come join us as Ted Dudak examines the
WORD of GOD found in
"The Book of 1 Samuel."
Wednesday Evenings 6:30 P.M.
1 Samuel follows the Book of Ruth. You may recall from that study, that Ruth occurred during the time of the Book of Judges, where “Everyone did what was right in his own eyes."
The book begins with Samuel's birth and Yahweh's call to him as a boy. The story of the Ark of the Covenant follows. It tells of Israel's oppression by the Philistines, which brought about Samuel's anointing of Saul as Israel's first king. Yahweh then promised David and his successors an everlasting dynasty.
The book of 1 Samuel (originally 1st and 2nd were one) focuses on three characters: Samuel, Saul, and David. A poem near the start of the book reveals the book's key themes: God's opposition to the proud, exultation of the humble, faithfulness in spite of evil, and the promise of a messianic king.
Pastor Ted Dudak and alternately, Pastor Chad Boothman will be covering this new and exciting book. – 1 Samuel (of course, “Verse by Verse.” ) If you are like me, you won’t want to miss this great book.
