1 Samuel 9:1 - 10:8

1 Samuel
1 SamuelSteve Gregg

In this passage from the biblical book of 1 Samuel, Steve Gregg discusses the transition from judges to kings in Israel and the appointment of Saul as the first king. Gregg delves into the role of charismatic leaders, or judges, in biblical history and how their leadership style reflects God's intended way for the church to be run. He also discusses the distinctions between the Old and New Testament in terms of the Holy Spirit's influence, noting that in the Old Testament, the Holy Spirit comes upon prophets and individuals, while in the New Testament, believers become the house of God. Overall, Gregg frames Saul's appointment as a turning point in Israel's history, setting the stage for the monarchy that would follow.
