The Light In The Light At The End Of The Tunnel 1 Samuel Midweek Prayer Meeting

The books of Samuel were originally written as one coherent story, but due to the length of the work, they are separated into two books in our modern Bible. (They were first separated in the Septuagint, the Greek translation of the Old Testament.)

Scripture References: 1 Samuel 1:11-20, Acts 13:32-33, 1 Samuel 27:6, Galatians 3:16, 1 Samuel 16:1, 1 Samuel 27:6, Micah 5:2, 1 Samuel 2:1-11, Genesis 35:19, 1 Samuel 1:1-28, 1 Corinthians 1:20, 1 Samuel 21:24, Romans 1:1-2

2 Samuel 1 - How the Mighty Have Fallen - Midweek Prayer Meeting

The book of Samuel has shifted after the death of Saul. The account is now solely focused on David who is not only going to become Israel’s greatest king but the forefather of God’s Eternal King, Jesus Christ. 1 Samuel establishes David’s legitimacy as king while 2 Samuel traces the successes and struggles of his reign. We might expect the first chapter to open with a grand coronation of David as ruler over a united kingdom; however, we are far from that. The first chapter does not open with David’s glory but an expression of His grief. David proves that He trusts God’s Word looking back to Leviticus 19:15-18, and he lives in the shadow of the words of the Son of David in Matthew 5:43-45, “Love your enemies... That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven...” The chapter has two natural divisions.

Scripture References: 1 Samuel 31:1-13, Exodus 22:21, Leviticus 19:15-18, Matthew 5:43-45, 1 Samuel 16:21, 2 Samuel 1:1-27, 2 Samuel 4:10, 1 Chronicles 10:1-14
