Title: Choosing a King, Part 1: The Prophet
Speaker: Dave Everson
This month we're studying the story of Israel's transition from a collection of affiliated tribes to a united nation under a king. What can we learn from the way their king was chosen?
This week, we read the story of the calling of Samuel—the prophet who guided Israel through that transition. Samuel first heard God's voice when he was a boy. But it was Eli—the disgraced high priest—who played a crucial role in preparing Samuel to take on that role.
