1 Samuel 3:1-4:1

  1. Notice the expressions used about Samuel in 2:18, 21; 3:1, 7, 19.
    What new thing came into Samuel’s life in the experience described in 3:1-14?
    Why did Samuel have to tell the vision (3:15-18)? Cf. 1 Cor. 9:16.
  2. What was lacking in Israel at this time, and what did God do to meet the need? 3:2, 3; Rom. 10:14, 15.

 Notes

3:1. In those days there was no prophet regularly active to give the people messages from God; contract 3:20 – 4:1a.

3:10. ‘The Lord came and stood there’. This vivid language is paralleled in Job 4:15, 16.
