I have come to understand that from the text in The Essence of the Old Testament: A Survey pp. 164 that Israel pressed to have a king like all the other nations. Samuel was at this time beginning to fade out and there really was no one to replace him. So the kingship was a choice of the people, even more then God choice. Our true core vanity will always lead us in the wrong direction.
It seems to me that this plays over and over in history that man will at some point give in to himself. The nation of Israel now past the state of oppression because the disobedience of the people. The failure to have right men to judge on things gave way to rebellious ways. Seems the necessity for a ruler was very strong in their minds. The bible says that Saul was a man that came from level of power from the tribe of Benjamin. Saul was considered to be a choice young man, 1 Samuel 9:2 says, “There was not among the children of Israel a goodlier person then him; from his shoulders and upward he was higher than any of the people.” Now I find myself a little turn around here. Did they mean having great reverence for God; pious. That would say he was godlier right? So because he was of good substantial size, of good or fine appearance. I have a good pal of mine like that, but he is as wise as a stone. (Smile) Saul made really bad choices as king going so far as to step in and act as a priest to offer sacrifices.
Now from the book of Acts 13:22 (KJV) we see favor with God "I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will do all My will." One or two attributes David displayed that made for him to become a better king than Saul. Mainly his humility to God. Saul as we see had come before David as king, and utterly failed by disobeying God I Sam. 13:13-14(KJV) God decided to replace Saul with someone else as king, and God used a much better method of selecting the…...

Joseph interpreted Pharoh's dreams Israel's disobedience was not in their inability to keep the law, but in 'choosing' not to keep it. When the people got tired of waiting for Moses they made a golden calf to worship. The Flood was a global flood. Lot wanted to live in Sodom and Gomorrah because it was a lush agricultural region. Toledot means generations. The order of Patriarchs is Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph and his brothers... God created the universe. The Law of the Israelites was superior to other legal codes of the same time period. What is the significance of the two creation accounts? How are they similar, and how are they different? One is chronological detailing the events. The other is topical focusing on relationships. What is the significance of the two creation accounts? How are they similar, and how are they different?

...BIBL 104-D81 March 31, 2014 Forum 1 (Modules 2 and 3): Historical-Cultural Context 1. Historical-Cultural Context - According to Duvall & Hays, in Journey Into God’s Word; the first step in understanding the bible, or any historical text for that matter, is understanding the text as it relates to the original author and his or her specific audiences. If a reader doesn’t have a good grasp of the circumstances surrounding the introduction of the text at the time of authorship, how can he or she begin to understand the author’s original intent? Was the author relating a story to elicit particular feelings or emotions, laying down edicts to be followed without waiver, or just providing a narrative description of actual events? Furthermore, historical and cultural context give us a framework for looking at a passage or literary piece, and applying the information based upon the changes in the current conditions as they exist today. Duvall & Hays use the New Testament passage referencing the difficulty of a rich man entering the kingdom of heaven as a perfect example of the miss-application of historical context. For years children have been taught of a gate in the walls of Jerusalem called the ‘Eye of the Needle’ that was so narrow camels had to thread their way through very carefully. Unfortunately, there is no record of any such gate actually existing; therefore, even though the imagery is poignant, interpreting the meaning of the passage using this false historical...

...Bible Dictionary Project Template Name: Brittani Fink Student ID: L25540669 Course: Bibl 104 Date: September 22, 2014 Old Testament Bible Dictionary Project: Ruth is one of the most well known women of the Bible. She began her life in Moab, and eventually she moved to Israel. Ruth lived approximately 1000 B.C. No information is known about Ruth’s birth. Ruth is best known as one of the most godly women in the Bible. God reinforced her decision to leave her own country and she is one of the most prominent women in Jesus’ geneology. Ruth was known best for her loyalty, love, obedience and diligence. Ruth was a wife to Boaz and mother to Obed. Ruth put her trust in God and left her family and a land she knew to marry her first husband. After her husband died instead of fleaing back to her homeland she satyed with her mother-in-law then traveled together to Judah. Tursting in God again, Ruth found herself to fend for herself and to begin work in the fields, which is how she met Boaz. By being faithful and trusting God she was blessed with a son and grandson. Through Ruth’s life we can see that she is an example that God will reward our faithfulness. After she made the sacrifice to leave her family then lost her husband she remained faithful and trusted in God and God rewarded her. “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28). The book of Matthew, although not......

Bibl 105 Essay 2

...Ryan Conaghan Dr. Gonzales BIBL 105-C05 5 March 2015 Essay #2 God calls his people to obedient. In return for obedience, God promises to provide. During the time of Solomon the people of Israel lacked obedience. God as king was no longer good enough. Israel’s lack of obedience caused them to anoint a king that also lacked faith in the Lord. Man is broken and even great leaders have flaws. Israel’s demand for a king ultimately resulted in the division of the kingdom. During the time of Samuel, the people of Israel desire a king. God had promised to provide for the Israelites and in return God asked for obedience and love. Throughout the Old Testament God always provided for the Israelites yet God’s people regularly rejected him. God was no longer valued as king, and the people of Israel asked God to give them a King. In 1 Samuel 8:5 the elders came to Samuel and said “You are old, and your sons do not follow your ways; now appoint a king to lead us, such as all the other nations have (NIV).” Samuel warned the people of Israel that a king would reign over them and claim the people as rights, yet the Israelites neglected to listen. Israel desired a king in flesh to lead them into combat and keep them accountable. All other nations had a King, therefore Israel wanted a king. Samuels spoke to the people, “When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, but the Lord will not answer you in that day (1 Samuel 8:18)” but his warning fell on......

...LIBERTY UNIVERSITY BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW ESSAY BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW ESSAY DR. BRYAN RAY SCHOOL OF CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES BY BIBL 110 MARCH 9, 2015 BIBLICAL WORLD VIEW ESSAY Introduction / Thesis The apostle Paul’s first eight chapters of Romans was invaluable to the Romans back in AD 56 -57 and Christians today. It provide us with a foundational building blocks to analyze the biblical and Christian worldview of the past and present. Paul’s teachings of such worldview are profound in the daily application to a natural world, human identity, human relations, and culture. Furthermore, the study of these first eight chapters has greatly impacted my current worldview, and God’s plan for us as individuals and as a nation. The Natural World A biblical worldview of the natural world dates back to the begging. God created man in his image, and likeness. He gave Adam authority over the earth, and free wheel to make decisions, Gen. 1: 26-27. God created women so men shall leave his father and mother to become one flesh, Gen. 2: 24. Today, non-Christians and “Christians” challenge God’s commandments and his natural order. God as the creator of the natural world, humans have chosen to satisfy the needs of the flesh over Paul’s teachings of becoming a slave of Jesus Christ. For unbelievers it is easier to challenge the non-existence of God, in order to continue their sinful behavior without any moral consequences. Human Identity Paul said in......

...Essay Question 4 In what manner do the prophets speak to the following 3 issues: idolatry, social injustice, and religious ritualism? Cite examples of the prophets speaking to each of these issues. Knowing what the prophets had to say about these issues, what practical applications can be drawn from those teachings for today? Submit this assignment through SafeAssign by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Friday of Module/Week 8. In this teaching we are able to look at some of the major prophets in the bible as they try and warn a nation that was falling away from God. From this teaching we are able to see many similarities to what is now going on in modern day times. Idolatry, social injustice, and religious ritualism in today’s society is almost more prevelant than what was happening in the old testament, and within these teachings of the prophets lies a lot of wisdom for anyone seeking the Father in heaven. Several of the prophets in the Old Testament had much to say in regards to idolatry, social injustice, and religious ritualism. Some of the prophets in this teaching that we will look closer at will be Jonah, Isaiah, Hosea, Micah, and Ezekiel. The word idolatry is not used much in our modern day, but many of us might not know that this is an area of discussion that God really wanted us to listen to. Every Christian knows that the Ten Commandments are the structure or foundation to living a Christian life. The first two commandments God told Moses to write down were “You......

Bibl 105 Short Essay 2

...BIBL 105 Short Essay 2 As we follow the events of the nation Israel, we see the hand of God in every turning point of their history. How He brought them out of Egyptian bondage under the leadership of Moses, to the possession of the land of promise under the leadership of the great commander Joshua. History then points us, to the book of 1 Samuel showing how God transitioned His covenanted nation away from the failing theocratic administration under the tribal judges toward the theocratic administration of the united monarchy; thus the era of the reign of kings were born (Hinson and Yates 2012:162). Samuel the righteous judge of Israel is raised up to serve during a time when the nation was declining both morally and politically. The priesthood was corrupt and the hearts of the people were far from God. The Philistine oppression was great and had wrought a great slaughter among them. It was Samuel whom God used to ultimately usher the nation back to Him. “So the Israelites put away the Baals and the Ashtaroth, and served the Lord only. Samuel said, Gather all Israel to Mizpah and I will pray to the Lord for you. So they gathered at Mizpah and drew water and poured it out before the Lord and fasted on that day and said there, we have sinned against the Lord. And Samuel judged the Israelites at Mizpah.” (1 Sam 7:4-6 AMP). Now as Samuel began to age, he appointed his two sons as judges over Israel, but they did not possess the righteousness of Samuel. They......

Bibl 105 Essay 2

...The Bible talks a lot about the teachings of Hebrews wisdom on diligence and laziness. An example is Solomon’s teachings on wisdom and diligence with contrast between wisdom and folly. This topic is mostly found in the books of Proverbs where the Proverbs are mostly sharing wisdom. Solomon whom authored Proverbs and was well known for the gift he received from God after being asked for anything he chose wisdom and that’s what he received. When he taught about diligence he always tried to contrast it with laziness with parallels. He teaches that a diligent man will never want. Proverbs 13:4 says, “… the soul of the diligent is richly supplied.” In Proverbs 21:5,”The plans of the diligent only lead to abundance…” while Proverbs 10:4 says, “The hand of the diligent enriches”, and Proverbs 12:11 says, “He who works his land will have plenty of food.” And all those these things seem outright and not too important, they obviously had to be other wise Solomon wouldn’t have recorded them then. But because of the money Solomon’s kingdom had there was a lot of room for laziness for the people. In the eyes of the diligent people the lazy people were low lives or people who they just didn’t like or care for. An example is Martha who worked so hard she missed almost all of Jesus’ sermon in Luke 10:40 in her own house. Solomon says diligence is described like this, “She looks after the ways of her household, and the bread of idleness she will not eat.” This teaching could bring a......

Bibl 105 Essay 1

...Throughout Genesis 1-11 we see God’s love for his creation. Genesis starts the foundation of Biblical worldview first describing God as the creator of all things. In the reading this week “God is introduced as an absolute personal being who cares about His creation and the human struggle of the fallen world.”(Ed Hindson, The Essence of the Old Testament). The scriptures also help us to understand how to view the world and how God has played a huge part in the creation of it all. God created the natural world in six days. Can you imagine creating everything from the oceans, to every single living organism on this earth, in just six days? I cant, but thank goodness God decided to rest on the seventh day. Through that seventh day, God presents the way our lives should look. In the Jewish tradition there is such a thing called a Sabbath, this tradition states that on the seventh day of the week there is rest. “By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.” says Genesis 2:2-3. Therefore, we should take to heart that we need rest in our busy lives. We tend to get so run down with the cares of this world and forget that the seventh day is a holy day. When it comes to the creating of the earth God knew what he was doing. There has always be a controversy about whether evolution is real or not.......

Bibl 105 Essay 2

...As Samuel grew in age he intended to appoint one of his sons as the king of Israel. His sons however did not follow the ways of their father or God. “They turned aside after dishonest gain and accepted bribes and perverted justice” (I Samuel 8:3). The people of Israel desired a king, “a king like all the other nations” (Hindson and Yates, 2012. P.164). The people had grown tired of oppression and felt that “the lack of a strong human leader as the cause and did not realize that the reason for the oppression was a spiritual on-their failure to serve God” (Harbin, 2005, p.219). Saul was not God’s choice for the throne but “he was the people’s choice” (Hindson and Yates, 2012. P.164). Saul’s appointment as king was against the “old theocratic ideal that God alone was King of Israel (I Samuel 8:5). Saul’s reign lasted from 1029-1005BC (Roux and Williams, 2012). Saul had great military talent and garnered God’s support by reuniting the Israelites and crushing the Ammonites. Nearing the final years of Saul’s reign “he was very pre-occupied with David’s increasing fame which severely depressed him” (Roux and Williams, 2012). Saul had even gone so far as to hunt David down in order to kill him. In 1 Samuel 16:14 we see were Saul had lost God’s spirit and He had replaced it with and evil spirit. Saul had begun to suspect everyone around him of plotting against him. After God refused to bless Saul in a battle he did the unthinkable. Saul “consulted a medium at Endor” (Roux...

...Methods of Evangelism Austin Catania Liberty University Online The Four Spiritual Laws The Four Spiritual Laws are basic and to the point ways on how to inform men and women of the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ. If you know of someone who you think is ready to hear the gospel, the Four Spiritual Laws is a simple organized way of sharing the gospel. The First Law is that “God loves you, and offers a wonderful plan for your life.” As God made the ultimate sacrifice of having his only Son die on the cross for you and me, he did it out of love so that we may live with Him forever in heaven. John 3:16 is the perfect verse in explaining the ultimate sacrifice, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16, NIV). The Second Law is “Man is sinful and separated from God. Therefore, he cannot know and experience God's love and plan for his life.” The Bible clearly states that “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). Thus why Jesus was sent to die on the cross, so that he may build a bridge between us, sinners, and God. God had a plan so that sinners may experience God’s love and be able to see the path God has for us. The Third Law states that “Jesus Christ is God's only provision for man's sin. Through Him you can know and experience God's love and plan for your life.” Jesus died in our place, he took the beating and suffering......
