Unit 10: Samuel and King Saul

Despite all that God had done for Israel, God's people continued to rebel against Him. They demanded a king, going against God's plan and ignoring His warnings about how a king would rule them. God provided Israel's first king, Saul, to rule His people Israel. Christ, the final King, rules over all people as Savior.
