Listen as Dr. Bruce Waltke unpacks three significant changes in the history of Israel through the books of Samuel. The centre of worship moves from Shiloh to Jerusalem, the leadership changes from episodic judges to kingship, and the nation is transformed from a tribal league to a unified kingdom capable of exercising imperial power over neighboring states. These tectonic shifts determine the contours of Israel's history for the next four centuries and lay the eternal foundation for the Christian understanding of Jesus of Nazareth as the Messiah and of his rule from heavenly Jerusalem.

The books' narrator, through brilliant literary techniques, traces this history with enthralling biographies to shape the people of God. He gives an 'x-ray' photograph of the souls of those who reshaped Israel in this time of change. This series aims to let this message be inscribed on the listener's heart. Lectures include:
