As David steps into power, things begin to look drastically different than they have before. However, this also begins a difficult portion of reading for us who are so far removed from this point in history. This episode serves as an overview of the next few books, trying to make sense of what feels like a foreign and insignificant portion of Scripture. Though it can be confusing, it is worth working to understand how the biblical authors viewed this point in their history. Apr 15, 202456:58Week 15 A New King Rises: End of 1 SamuelIn this episode, Alec and guest host Coby Neal look at the last few chapters of 1 Samuel. As Saul's reign ends, his time is filled with desperate searches for answers and control.

As we begin an era of a new king, the text gives reason to hope this king will be a major part of bringing redemption forward. As always, if you have questions you can submit them at the link below.
