While all the surrounding nations had a king to look up to for guidance, the people of Israel demanded the same from their God. 1-2 Samuel reveals God's providential care as He provides Saul to be their king, and then transfers the power to David. Over the course of 12-weeks, you can work through these books that detail the history of ancient Israel, and witness the unfolding of God's promise to David that is eventually realized in the King of Kings: Jesus Christ.
The Knowing the Bible series is a resource designed to help Bible readers better understand and apply God’s Word. These 12-week studies guide participants through books of the Bible and are made up of four basic components:
(1) reflection questions help readers engage the text at a deeper level;
(2) “Gospel Glimpses” highlight the gospel of grace throughout the book;
(3) “Whole-Bible Connections” show how any given passage connects to the Bible’s overarching story of redemption, culminating in Christ;
(4) “Theological Soundings” identify how historic orthodox doctrines are taught or reinforced throughout Scripture.
With contributions from an assortment of influential pastors and church leaders, these gospel-centered studies will help Christians see and cherish the message of God’s grace on every page of the Bible.
