OAKRIDGE BIBLE CHAPEL

The Books of Samuel (Cover-to-Cover Series)

The biblical books of First and Second Samuel are, so say it simply, action-packed. And, within the repeated ups and downs of the inspired narrative are some of the most well-known, oft-quoted, and dearly-beloved stories: Hannah’s miraculous pregnancy (1 Samuel 1), the tragic reign of king Saul (1 Samuel 10–31), the anointing of Jesse’s youngest son (1 Samuel 16), David and Goliath (1 Samuel 17), David and Jonathan (1 Samuel 18), David’s enthronement (2 Samuel 2), the unification of the kingdom (2 Samuel 5), God’s covenant with David (2 Samuel 7), David and Bathsheba (2 Samuel 11), David’s mighty men (2 Samuel 23), and the degradation of the kingdom (2 Samuel 13–22). It is an absolutely epic ride with much to teach us about God, his world, and his people.

With so much scriptural ground to cover we needed to find a guest to guide us well and we found just that. Jonathan Ward serves as the Associate Professor of Bible and Theology at the Owen Sound Campus of the Word of Life Bible Institute right here in Ontario. He is a graduate of New Brunswick Bible Institute, Baptist Bible Seminary, and holds a Master of Divinity from Luther Rice Seminary.
