The book of First Samuel marks one of the largest transitions in Israel's history. At the beginning of the book, Israel is nothing more than a bunch of clans that fight each other and get oppressed by their neighbors. By the end, Israel's hero has emerged and is about to take the throne. Even more than that, Samuel's books give the Christian a picture of the Messiah and the foreverness of his reign. In this sermons series we will explore God's faithfulness and his patience as he weaves together the threads that ultimately lead us to Jesus Christ.
