Considering this, what happened Samuel 1?
After being raised by the priest Eli in temple, Samuel becomes God's number one prophet. Up until this point in biblical history, the Israelites have not had a king. After Saul mucks up with the Philistines a few times and fails to unite the tribes of Israel together, God sends Samuel to find a new king—a better king.
Also, what was the role of Samuel in the history of Israel? Samuel was an honest and fair judge, dispensing God's law impartially. As a prophet, he exhorted Israel to turn from idolatry and serve God alone. Despite his personal misgivings, he led Israel from the system of judges to its first monarchy.
Simply so, how many books are there in 1 Samuel?
