Of Kings and Prophets is the title of an “epic series premiering Tuesday, March 15th,” at 9:00 P.M. Central time on ABC (if you can tear lose from the election results?).
Around 3,000 years ago the Twelve Tribes of Israel decided they had put up with the repeatedly vicious attacks of neighboring Kings long enough, and began demanding a King of their own.
The prophet Samuel found himself struggling with the people on the one hand and with God on the other. To pacify the people, Saul was anointed as Israel’s first king.
King Saul soon faced struggles of his own between the ongoing wars, the prophet Samuel, and his envious relationship with David, the young shepherd boy he had at first welcomed into the royal family.
It is one of the most riveting stories of world history. You can read it in the Bible in 1 Samuel, and compare how accurately the series may portray the historical facts of the Bible.
Do we the people of America today somehow resemble the Biblical story? Are we possibly preparing to welcome a Dictator-President? I truly have to wonder. PRAYER, PLEASE!
