Beheadings! Greedy, immoral priests! Witchcraft! Murder and intrigue at the highest levels of government! Can you believe these stories are a part of Scripture? They’re here, and sadly, they represent real life in the time of Samuel. Everyone did whateverthey wanted—long before that became a modern slogan. Yet God was there too. In one of the darkest periods of Israel’s history, God was working to bring about humanity’s salvation. He quietly gave a desperate, praying, childless woman a son named Samuel, who grew up to become one of the greatest prophets, prayer warriors, and kingmakers in Israel. God then used Samuel to call out a shepherd boy, David, to become Israel’s most beloved king. In all of this, God was pointing to thetime He would send His Son, Jesus, to be our Savior and King.
