Ep. 1 – Explore the reigns of Israel’s kings—from the best to the worst—and uncover the profound truth that none were the ultimate ruler the people needed. Join David Wollen as he examines 1 Samuel and sees how the stories of Israel’s kings are about the coming of a greater King.

Ep. 2 – Israel faced a great enemy in the Philistines. But God used the Prophet Samuel to deliver his people. And as we look at this story, we’ll see how it points us to an even greater deliverance from a greater enemy.

Ep. 3 – Often, we remember the bad more than the good. That’s why God calls us to build “mental monuments” to recall all the good he has done in our lives. Join David Wollen as he explores this wisdom in the final section of 1 Samuel 7.

Ep. 4 – Samuel’s corrupt sons pushed Israel to demand a king. But sadly, their request reveals a deeper rejection of God’s kingship. This story in 1 Samuel 8 underscores the dangers of ungodly leadership and the ultimate need for a righteous, divine King.

Ep. 5 – “You can’t always get what you want.” Famous song lyrics that could easily describe Israel’s request for a king. Their misplaced desires mirror our own. But the Lord knows what we truly need.

Ep. 6 – Jesus taught that the entire Bible, including the Psalms, is about Him. Join David Wollen and David Sunday from Word Partners as they explore how these ancient songs guide us to Jesus, teaching us to pray and find comfort in challenging times.

Ep. 7 – It’s the most quoted book in the New Testament. And even though they were written hundreds of years before Jesus, the book of Psalms is all about him. David Wollen continues his conversation with David Sunday about this “ancient hymnbook” and shows how to find Jesus in them.

Ep. 8Despite being anointed as king, David waited patiently for God’s timing. And insights from 1 Samuel shows the contrast between David’s heart for God and Saul’s disobedience.

Ep. 9 – David would not build a house for the Lord, but rather, God would build one for him. Discover how this key moment in Scripture became the focal point for God’s people, pointing us to Christ.

Ep. 10 – The prophet Samuel was not a king. Saul was, but not a good one. Was David the king God’s people truly needed? Don’t miss this conclusion of series that points us uniquely to Jesus Christ.
