1 Samuel

Study the Book of 1 Samuel with this new free online course from Dallas Theological Seminary.

Dallas Theological Seminary is offering a new free online course on the Book of 1 Samuel. The story of David and Goliath—one of the most familiar Old Testament Bible stories—is found in 1 Samuel. David, through God’s strength, defeated Goliath and helped lead the Israelites to victory against the Philistines. But there is so much more to the Book of 1 Samuel than the story of David and Goliath.

DTS training for the students in our professional ministry degree programs covers all 66 books of the Bible. This free online course on 1 Samuel is an excerpt from one of the DTS courses on the history books of the Old Testament. While completing this free online course won’t earn any credits from Dallas Theological Seminary or any other school, the lessons are adapted from the same classroom teaching DTS students receive.

In this six-lesson free online course, DTS associate professor of Bible Exposition Dr. Alex Gonzales walks through the events described in 1 Samuel, including Eli training Samuel, Samuel anointing Saul, Samuel anointing David, David defeating Goliath, and David hiding from Saul for years. The Book of 1 Samuel has a lot to teach us about what it means to be a person after God’s own heart.
