The Book of the Last Great Judge I Samuel a book of the Old Testament which provides the primary source for the history of Israel during the 11th and 10th centuries BC The book of Samuel relates the history of the Israelites people from the end of the period of the Judges to the last years of King Davids life and reign 2 Samuel also Some scholars believe that Samuel wrote the book but the events that occurred after Samuels death was credited to the Hebrew prophet Gad and the prophet Nathan The days of the judges were dark until God rose up Samuel as a prophet priest and judge Samuel would do what was right in Gods eyes But the people werent satisfied They complained appoint a king for us to judge us like all the other nation With that plea they rejected the Lord as their King What would it be like to live under a monarchy rather than a theocracy The children of Israel were soon to find out as the times of the kings began In the first chapter of Samuel Hannah prays for a child and she bears Samuel Hannah thanks God by dedicating Samuel to God When Samuel is older and a judge the people ask for a king Saul is crowned king but soon after Samuels death he does a wicked thing God rejects Saul and David becomes king The Israelites did in their own eyes as they saw fit so in a way a king was good but what the kings choose to do was wrong Same with our leadership today but we all must trust God For I know the plans I for you said the Lord
