First Samuel covers a period of about 115 years and is a pivotal point in the history of Israel. The long period of the rule of the judges ended under the prophet Samuel, and royal history began with the anointing of Saul and later David. The history and lessons of this book are presented to us in the form of biography covering the early years of Samuel, Saul and David. As with other books of the Bible, 1 Samuel records man s failure and God s faithfulness. Within its pages we see God s long-suffering with those in rebellion against Him, and we see what God can do in and through those who are committed to serving Him.
