Question of the day

Chronological Bible Discipleship

Iva May and Dr. Stan May

week sixteen

1 Samuel 18 – 2 Samuel 22


Creation: God reveals His goodness through creation and His mercy in response to sin.

Patriarchs: God reveals His response to the faithful-ness of men (Job, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph).

Exodus: God liberates Israel, and leads them to the Promised Land and shapes them into a nation holy to Himself.

Conquest: Joshua, relying on God’s presence and power, leads Israel to possess and settle the Promised Land.

Judges: Every man does what is right in his own eyes, and Israel falls into a cycle of disobedience, judgment, oppres-sionand deliverance (the sin cycle).

Kingdom Era

Israel asks for a king to be “like the peoples” around them. God grants their request first through Saul, son of Kish. Saul loves the praise of men more than the praise of God and be-gins a 40 year reign of disobedience.

The LORD raises up David, a man after His own heart. David reigns for 40 years, and while not perfect, is faithful overall. God honors His rule by building Israel into a world power.

David is seceded by his son Solomon who fulfills David’s desire to build a temple for the LORD. But in his later years, his heart turns away from God and the kingdom divides.


  • 400 years prior to the end of the Judges era, God gave Moses in-structions regarding Israel’s future, and one of those instructions is per-tinent to where Israel finds itself.

  • The people of Israel now begin to demand a king to lead them like all the nations around them.

  • They approach the aging prophet and judge Samuel with their demands.

  • Samuel warns them of the cost of a king (taxes, conscrip-tionand servitude)

  • Determined to be like their neighbors, the people ignore the warnings and persist in demanding a king.

  • God gives Israel the king they think they want.

    • Conscription – their sons would be taken to serve in the king’s armies (10-12)

    • Servitude – their daughters would be taken to serve in the king’s household (13)

    • Taxes – a tenth of their wealth would be taken to support the king and his government (14-17)

      • 1 Sam 13:13-14: Samuel said to Saul, “You have acted foolishly; you have not kept the commandment of the LORD your God, which He commanded you, for now the LORD would have established your kingdom over Israel forever. But now your kingdom shall not endure.”

Reality of having a king3
Reality of having a King can fashion men into godly leaders.

  • Saul’s failures as king are highlighted (1 Sam 15)

    • He does not consider the present in light of the past (1-3)

      • Unfamiliarity with The Book of the Law leads him to overlook the importance of destroying the Amalekites (Deut 25:17-19)

      • God promised that He would “blot out” Amalek(Ex 17:14)

    • He uses his position to build a monument to himself instead of attributing his success to the LORD (12)

    • He does not fear the LORD but lives to please people (13-21)

      • Does not destroy Amalek and their possessions

      • Allows his men to keep the best for themselves

      • When confronted, justifies his disobedience and blames the people

    • Saul reigns for 40 years, but his descendants are prohibited from inheriting the throne

Conclusions can fashion men into godly leaders.

Many spiritual leaders today are chosen based solely on external characteristics (appearance, education, socio-economic group) instead of a heart for God and ob-edience to His Word.

God grants people what they demand in order to teach them lessons they would not have learned otherwise.

Men who seek to please men more than God can fool themselves into believing they are successful.

Saul became defensive and deflected blame when con-fronted about his disobedience. How a man responds when confronted with his foolish actions reveals his character.

Discussion can fashion men into godly leaders.

Can you think of an example of a political or religious leader whom people wanted but later regretted?

What was the ultimate cause of Saul’s complete failure in destroying the Amalekites?

How can churches and organizations discern God’s choice of the right leader?

What should they look for?
