1 Sam. 27 – 31

December 19, 2016 all-day

Dec. 19 – End of Saul’s life –   Again, why does David try to escape to the land of the Philistines?  Why didn’t the LORD answer Saul by dreams or Urim or prophets?  (Where were the Urim and Thummim, and where were the true prophets?)  What does it mean that Saul swore by the LORD to the witch of Endor (28:10)?  How was it that Samuel, who was dead, talked to Saul?  How did God give David wisdom in dealing with the Amalekites? (note also Samuel’s words to Saul – 28:18)  How did Saul’s life end?  Why was Jonathan also killed? (see again 28:19)
