TCS/NT 7-Part READING SERIES: “The Book of Samuel & The Birth of Monarchy”

Session 7 - Saturday, June 8th at the Synagogue - after services & Kiddush, approx. 12:15 pm - Brown Bag (bring your own) lunch. Free & open to the public

The Book of Samuel closes with the death of King David. Before his passing, David annoints his successor and leaves a chilling set of deathbed instructions for the new king of Israel to follow. He also leaves behind a treasure trove of invaluable lessons on the acquisition, promotion, and transmission of power, which we will review in our final discussion of this classic of biblical literature.
