The Book of Samuel I

The Dennis and Phillip Ratner Museum

Dates: Every Sunday, September 26, 2010 - June 26, 2011
Time: 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Speaker: Gideon Amir

Gideon Amir received his master’s degree in Judaic Studies from Baltimore Hebrew University.

The Books of Samuel describe the transition from a tribal system to a monarchy. In the Books of Joshua and Judges, the tribal system played a major role. The Book of Samuel shows the different efforts to create a central leadership for the whole of Israel. These efforts start with God’s messenger Samuel, first of the major Prophets to prophesy inside the Land of Israel. Samuel was at the cusp between two eras, and was instrumental in establishing Israel’s monarchy with the anointing of the first two kings of Israel, Saul and David.
