Dec. 10 – Saul & Jonathan – How does Jonathan compare to his father, Saul? (review also 13:3, who initiated the battles? Who should have?) Why didn’t Jonathan tell his father? How much leadership did Saul give? Why did Israel defeat the Philistines? When the “lot was cast” (v.42) why was Jonathan taken and not Saul? Who had sinned against the LORD? Note the 2nd foolish oath that Saul made (v.44). Who “deserved” to die?
