We look again at the characters in the ‘hall of faith’ in Hebrews 11, this time dwelling on Samuel. The following points are considered:

  • The importance of Samuel on the stage of Old Testament Scripture
  • The roles which Samuel performed - prophet, priest and king
  • Therefore, the way in which Samuel prefigures Christ

Finally, given the judgment that falls on Eli, we are challenged to make sure we raise our children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
