  1. 4.(b) Why do you think God raised up a godly prophet like Samuel after Israel had suffered
    under the poor leadership of Eli and his sons?

    Dear Jean,

    I am not sure what is your intention of the question.

    Do you think God want to teach importance of a leader, so that it could be a preparation of kingship?

    • Yes, I think preparing the Israelites for the kingship (and in particular King David) was one of the reasons. Other reasons are to reverse the damage Eli and his sons had caused, and to lead the people back to God.
