The eighth chapter of 1 Samuel reveals the heart of the Israelites who want to be like the nations by having a king. They want a human king and not God to be their king. They want a human king to lead them into battles. They want a human king so that they can be like the nations. Though this is a rejection of God, God tells Samuel to give to them what they desire. Chapters 9-10 will show the anointing of Israel’s new king and through this we are going to learn about the kind of king we need and why we need a king at all.
