I have completed the book of 1 Samuel. With that, you will find Samuel, King Saul, and some of David added to the Bible Roadmap website.

It starts with Hannah praying for a son then dedicating Samuel to the Lord. Samuel is raised by Eli and becomes a great prophet.  Eventually the people ask for a king – they want what their neighboring nations have. So the Lord directs Samuel to anoint Saul as Israel’s first king. But King Saul doesn’t completely obey the Lord, and God eventually rejects him as king.  The Lord then directs Samuel to anoint David as the next king. David is on the run from King Saul for much of 1 Samuel.  When we get to 2 Samuel, David becomes King of Judah and then King of all of Israel.

I hope you are enjoying this website. Feel free to contact the webmaster (see Contact Us from the main website) if you want to be notified whenever an update is made.

Stay tuned for the rest of the sections on “Kings Reign Over a United Israel” – it will include King David and King Solomon.
