- The Last Judge and the First King of Israel
- Samuel was the last Judge of Israel who was also a prophet of God. Though he warned Israel against their Godless wishes for an earthly king, he and God granted their wish. While it wasn't long before their hopes were dashed, God already had yet another backup plan already in place for His people.
