It has been a good while since we have studied Old Testament narrative on Sunday mornings. The last Old Testament narrative book we studied was the book of Ruth in 2005. So I thought it was important that after our study of Hebrews we should take some time and journey through a historical book in the Old Testament. Two weeks ago we started the book of 1 Samuel and it has been rich thus far. I came across this brief blog article that gives some helpful guidelines for interpreting and understanding Old Testament stories. Check out the blog and keep it in mind as we walk through 1 Samuel.
