Last month for April we had the First Book of Samuel read and so this month we will be reading the Second Book of Samuel. The Second Book of Samuel contains 24 chapters and so if read one chapter a day reading will be complete before the month is over. Second Samuel and First Samuel were originally one book but split into two seperate ones after canonization of the Bible. Second Samuel is a direct sequel to First Samuel and so this is unique in it allows a timeline of understanding.
In order to engage with more specifics we would like those reading to give us their comments on the following questions:
- How do the accounts of First and Second Samuel flow together?
- Identity five ways that David brought glory to God and five ways he sinned against him
- What impact did Samuel have on the events beyond his lifetime?
- Why do you think even the losses and evil deeds of Israel were recorded, compared to other nation's records with no accounts of evil or losses
