1 Samuel 27-28

Men Behaving Badly: on a single day

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 27-28 we see that even God’s anointed makes compromises while seeking refuge in Gath– leaving us just a little uneasy about David as the future king.
