Samuel, Kings, and Chronicles
Samuel was the last judge in Israel. Israel decided they wanted to be like other nations. Israel asked Samuel for a king. Of course Samuel consulted with God on the matter. It wasn’t Samuel that Israel was rejecting. Israel was rejecting God.
Samuel provided a list of the warnings God gave Israel before they made their final decision. God told Israel what kings would do and what they expected the people to do for them. God’s warning to Israel was only the tip of the iceberg of problems with government we see today. What lessons do we learn from that?
Saul of course was the first king God chose. Saul didn’t work out well. So God chose a new king, David. David also had his problems and issues. Many of the books and studies on this site look at times David prayed to God before making a decision, and times he forgot to pray.
Studies and books on this site look at the kings in order. The Tabernacle, Temple, and Heavenly Sanctuary look at the relationship each of those kings had with the stone temple.
Kings and Chronicles looked at those kings from different view points, and at times, in a slightly different order. Inspired writers used those types of records to get us to look at problems and issues those kings faced from different directions. Each is unique and teaches a different lesson.
This website has been worked and reworked to improve your experience as you walk through the Bible or search for information. Menus have been added that divide the Bible into commonly known groups. Each group contains a number of books from the Bible in the order they are found in the Bible. You can navigate through each drop down menu to search for the information you are looking for.
Links have been added to each main page for every book of the Bible. Those links show the results of a simple search. That page will show you topics, studies, and stories related to each book of the Bible. At least those I have written about and posted. More are added everyday.
The drop down menu for each book of the Bible will show studies and stories from that Bible Book.

I may be offering website design services in the future. Those services will center on teaching people how to start and maintain their own personal websites. Which will include the ability to sell products. Contact me if you are interested.
