Study Guide Bible Lesson 16: Samuel Listens to God


Memory Verse: 1 Samuel 12:20 Samuel replied, Don’t be afraid. Even though you have committed all this evil, don’t turn away from following the Lord. Instead, worship the Lord with all your heart.    CSB

  1. During the time of the judges, people did what was right in their own eyes.
  2. Hannah was not able to have children. Elkanah, her husband, had another wife, Peninnah.
  3. Peninnah ridiculed Hannah because of her inability to have children.
  4. When Hannah, Elkanah, and the other members of Elkanah’s family went to Shiloh for the annual sacrifice, Hannah wept out of sadness and asked God for a son.
  5. In Hannah’s prayer, she promised God that she would dedicate her son to the lord’s service and vowed that he would be a Nazirite.
  6. God blessed Hannah with a son, whom she named Samuel. He also blessed her with a total of seven children.
  7. Samuel lived around 1100-1000 BC.
  8. When Samuel was a young boy, Hannah took him to Eli at the tabernacle as she had promised. Hannah left Samuel there to be trained for the Lord’s service.
  9. Samuel heard God’s voice as a young boy. God told him what was going to happen to Eli and Eli’s ungodly sons.
  10. God gave Samuel three jobs. He was a prophet, a priest, and a judge.
  11. Eli’s and Samuel’s sons were rejected as priests and judges in Israel because of their great ungodliness.
  12. God told Samuel to warn Israel about how an earthly king would make their lives so hard that they would one day cry out for God to deliver them from the king. At that time, God would choose to be silent. The Israelites did not listen to Samuel and demanded a king anyway.
  13. Samuel anointed first Saul, and then David, as king.
  14. Leadership is the ability to guide or inspire others to accomplish a desired goal.
  15. A good leader stays close to God, listens to Him, and obeys Him.
  16. Samuel was a good leader, but differed from Samson. Samuel listened to, feared, and obeyed God. Samuel was spiritually strong, humble, disciplined, and faithful. He honored his Nazirite vow.
  17. Both Samson and Samuel were judges and Nazirites, used by God, and appointed by God to be leaders over Israel. They both fought against the Philistines and had miraculous births.
  18. Reading the Bible, praying, meditating on God’s Word, going to Bible studies and worship services, and putting aside personal desires are ways to hear God more clearly.
  19. The word Messiah refers to the expected King and Deliverer of the Hebrews.
