    facing unjustified persecution?
  • Samuel had questions like, Who have I
    defrauded? Who have I oppressed? When did I
    take a bribe from? (123)
  • Why am I being persecuted, Lord? Light exposes

Discussion Questions

    made him unclean (Lev. 1124, 25, 27, 31-32).
  • 2nd day Saul inquired of Jonathan and he said
    David went to sacrifice and feast with his
  • Saul was furious (2030), not because of
    Jonathans message, but because he was aware of
    the friendship between Jonathan and David.
  • Out of anger, Saul falsely accused Jonathan of
    perversion and rebellion. He threw his spear at

    attempt murdering his son. Saul tied to kill

  • Jonathan had feelings of hurt and anger over the
    discovery, attempted murder and deception
  • David felt Jonathans pain. (2041-42)
  • If we expect to weep with those who weep and
    rejoice with those who rejoice then we must be
    able to know how others really feel.

  • His fear of Saul was more than fear of the
    Philistine king.
  • Gath was the same city of Goliath.

Discussion Questions

    Christian, not an evildoer. ( I Pt. 412-16 II
