Saul Was Unfaithful – July 10, 2019

1 Chronicles 9.1-10.14; Acts 27.21-44; Psalm 8.1-9; Proverbs 18.23-24

The book of Chronicles (the two parts are one continuous story) contains stories that are a repeat of things we have read in the books of Samuel and Kings. One of the questions we try to determine is why these stories are repeated and in what manner are they told with a different emphasis, so that we can determine the purpose of each of these books. To this end, Saul is said to have been killed due to his unfaithfulness of God. Why was he said to have been killed in 1-2 Samuel? Why the difference and do you think it is significant for understanding the purpose of the Chronicles?

Questions:

What is the reason the people of Judah were exiled to Babylon? How does this impact our own understanding of God’s punishment today?

How did Paul go from being ignored when he gave recommendation on when to sail to someone that all of the crew and officers listened to and did what he said?

How do your children show you God’s strength?

There are “friends” who destroy each other. Why would we ever call these people friends in the first place?
