Search The Scriptures —Study 4 — 1 Samuel 3:1-4:1a



Study 4 From the Book of 1 Samuel is: 3:1-4:1a


1. Notice the expressions used about Samuel in 2:18, 21; 3: 1, 7, 19.  What new thing came into Samuel's life in the experience described in 3:1-14? Why did Samuel have to tell the vision (3:15-18)? Cf. 1 Cor. 9:16.
2. What was lacking in Israel at this time, and what did God do to meet the need?  Do you know places that need similar divine provision? Cf. Jn. 1:6, 7; Lk. 3:2, 3;  Rom. 10:14, 15.
Notes
1.      3:1. In those days there was no prophet regularly active to give the people messages from God; contrast 3:20-4:1a.
2.      3:10. 'The Lord...stood forth': this vivid language is paralleled in Jb. 4:15, 16.
