"I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing."
(John 15:5)

1 Samuel


The book of Judges ends with the words, "In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as he saw fit" (Jdg 21:25). The book of 1 Samuel describes the transition of Israel from a loose confederation of tribes into a monarchy. Samuel himself was the bridge. He personally opposed the monarchy, for he saw the people's desire for a king as a rejection of God's rule. But he was the king-maker, the man who anointed both Saul who failed, and David who became the model for all kings everywhere down through the ages.
