1 Samuel 16-17

Men Behaving Badly: who is David?

In a time of transition from Theocracy to Monarchy, the books of Samuel might well be called ‘Men Behaving Badly.’ While there are occasional bright spots, time and again we see the failures of leadership and compromised faithfulness, with all their consequences. In 1 Samuel 16-17 we are introduced to the character of David. Although his time is not yet, he seems a promising candidate for a king.

This series on the book of 1 Samuel will continue next week.
