Search The Scriptures —Study 13 — 1 Samuel 15

Study 13 From the Book of 1 Samuel is: 1 Samuel 15search the srciptures

  1. Trace the course of Saul’s disobedience-his excuses (verse 20, 21, 24) and his self-interest (verse 30). Trace also the course of Samuel’s warning (verse 1), denunciation (verse 14, 18, 19) and declaration of divine judgment (verse 22, 23, 26, 28, 29). What may we here learn concerning God’s ways and the demands of His service?

  2. From verse 11, and from Samuel’s reply to Saul in verses 22, 23, what do we learn concerning the divine reaction against ritual without obedience, against outward religious observance which masks an inner disobedience? Have God’s requirements or His attitude changed.

Notes

  1. Verse 15. The whole point about the sacred ban was that everything must be destroyed; not one thing must be spared or looted. Cf. Jos. 7:1.

  2. Verse 35. ‘Samuel did not see Saul again. ‘See’ here means ‘visit’ or ‘go to see’. So, 19:24 involves no contradiction with this passage.
