Pearls And Purpose Study: 

Introduction To 1 Samuel

By Teresa Swanstrom Anderson

From Sarah : 

Theresa is in Week 3 of 1 Samuel’s . I will post this Bible Study daily this week. 

I would highly recommend either doing this study now or saving it for later. It is that good. 

If you are INTERESTED , I have another great 1 Samuel Bible Study I will be sharing soon. Message me if you want it now. sarahkasch@hotmail.com.  

Before jumping right into how Hannah’s prayer changed the course of history forever (see 1 Samuel 1:9-18), I’d like to share a little background on what was going on in the culture and history of the time.

Though the book of Ruth comes immediately before 1 Samuel in our Bibles, that’s not the case in the Talmud (our Christian Bible places it in this location to provide chronological context since Ruth’s grandson was King David’s father).

I read somewhere that, “If Judges is a book of failure, then Ruth is a book of quiet victory!” I love that.

The book of Judges is a stark contrast to Joshua. In the book of Joshua, we learn about the man who took over for Moses and lead an obedient group of people who put their trust in the power of God. And because of their confident expectation in Him, Jericho crumbled and then Canaan itself was conquered, bringing fulfillment to God’s promise generations before, as Moses brought the Israelites out of Egypt.
