"As we read the book of 1 Samuel, we see Jesus Christ with fresh colour and texture. And we see what it means for his people to follow him as King in an age that worships personal freedom."
Join Dr. Tim Chester as he opens up the book of 1 Samuel, helping you get to grips with its meaning and showing how it transforms our hearts and lives today.
1 Samuel is a book of barrenness and battles, kings and schemes, shepherds and giants. It recounts the history of Israel as it moved from no king, to the king it demanded, to the king God knew his people needed.
But its greatest excitement lies not in the events and characters, but in the person they all point to. 1 Samuel presents us with a wonderful picture of Jesus. Seeing him in and through this Old Testament book enables us to see him with fresh color and texture, and see afresh what it means for us to follow him today as our Ruler and Rescuer. 1 Samuel is a book about ancient times that speaks directly into ours.
