Give us a king

Give us a king 1Sam8

Today’s element of the Samuel story sees the prophet at the beginning of Israel’s shift from a theocracy to being a nation ruled by a king – it’s the moment the leaders ask to be like every other nation.

A Moment In Time is the Methodist Church’s daily online Bible Study and each week the notes are written by someone different. This week I’m doing it. You can find today’s reflections, on 1 Samuel 8:4-18, here.
