Israel’s First King

Answers Bible Curriculum 2nd Edition Unit 8 Lesson 75

This week in Sunday school, we move forward in the book of 1 Samuel and look at Israel’s first king. Why was it sinful for Israel to ask for a king when God had already promised that a king would come? How did Saul go from a humble king who sought Yahweh to a fearful king who disobeyed Yahweh’s clear commands? And what can both Israel and Saul teach us about the foolishness of fearing man over God?

Our main text for this lesson is 1 Samuel 8:1-15:35.
