  • He had a Godly mother, 1 Sam. 1:3,7-17
  • She prayed fervently, 1:5,11
  • Dedicated him to the Lord, 1:11,20,28
  • He was trained by Eli, 2:12; 3:13
  • His own sons were failures, 2:12,22-24; 3:11-13
  • A good job with Samuel, 3:9,17-20

Served in Face of Rejection
  • Samuel’s sons rebelled, 8:1-5
  • Did Samuel think: “My kids will never…”?
  • Israel asked for a king – “They were eager for God’s representatives to be more showy, to make a greater appeal to the eye. When religion has lost its inwardness, men generally seek to make up for that loss by an outward display” (Clovis Chappel)
  • Samuel anointed Saul, 9:1-17; 10:17-27
he served saul
He Served Saul
  • Instead of being jealous – he became lifelong friend of Saul.
  • Saul’s disobedience grieved him, 15:10-11,34,35; 16:1

  • Even after death, 28:7-19

He had a School for Prophets
  • 1 Sam. 19:20
  • “Moses had given the people their law, but Samuel in the schools of the prophets provided for them that education without which a written law was powerless… Samuel also established the Jewish monarchy, which was ideally also necessary, because the Messiah must not only be priest and prophet, but before all things a king (Mt. 2:1,5; Jn. 18:37)” (Pulpit Commentary).
  • Samuel wrote of these days, Acts 3:24-26 (2 Sam. 7:12-17)
  • “And what more shall I say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon and Barak and Samson and Jephthah, also of David and Samuel and the prophets, who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions…” (Heb. 11:32,33)
