Picture of History of the time

  • Philistines were the main threat during period, oppressing Israel for 40 years (Philistines in 5 main cities)

  • Philistines stole Ark of Covenant but ended up with plagues – returned it with 5 gold mice and 5 gold hemorrhoids

  • Philistines defeated by Samuel, trouble for Saul, totally subdued by David

  • People wanted king to fight enemies, even tho God fought their battles, winning while they were in fellowship with God – lost when not in fellowship with God

    People’s Willful Rejection of the Lord’s Rule over them

Samuel leader but not king
Samuel: Leader but not King

  • Hannah barren, prayed; Samuel dedicated to God

  • The last of the judges, prophet, priest

  • Ark of Covenant captured by Philistines; plague; Ark not brought back to Israel until David’s reign

  • Placed Israel’s 1st king on the throne - Saul

  • Anointed David (Read 2 Samuel 7: Davidic Covenant)

    See History of the establishment

    of Davidic Covenant

    Institution of the Monarchy (human king)

Saul first king
Saul : First King

  • Showed early promise to be a good king – modest, direct, generous (until later in his years)

  • Made David chief of soldiers; Jonathan’s best friend

  • Disregarded God’s order to kill ALL Amalekites. He spared livestock & King Agag (line of Haman – wait til Esther)

  • Turned against David and wanted David dead

  • David found Saul in cave – spared his life (cut robe)

David goliath to 40 year king
David: Goliath to 40-year King

  • Just after Saul made king, 9’9” professional Philistine soldier, Goliath, against Israelites, wanted 1/1 fight, expectation was with Saul; but young boy, David, with 5 stones, took challenge, won Goliath’s sword and head.

    Why 5 stones?

  • 1st, David was King of Judah then 7 years later, all of Israel, capital in Jerusalem, gave justice to all, poet, songwriter – wanted to build temple BAD! God said no, 2 Sam 12:10: “Sword shall never leave your house”

  • David’s Household turns into a Disaster: Bathsheba affair, 1st child died; had her husband killed, David’s son raped his daughter, son killed brother, son led rebellion against David with help of Ahithpoel (Bathsheba’s grandfather).

    Next week 1 Kings: Solomon, 40 year reign, builds Temple

Final thoughts

What sins do we have in our lives?

What sins are passed on to our sons/daughters?

David had many sins yet was a

“Man after God’s own heart”

God made covenant with David but would not allow

David to build God’s house / temple.

What blessings will we miss out on because of our disobedience?
