THE ORIGIN STORY OF JESUS
Part 33: The Demise of King Saul
Toward the end of his life, Samuel wanted to make
sure that the Israelites knew that he had never taken a bribe.
Meanwhile, King Saul transitioned from a humble farmer to a warring
monarch with a small army, who used his office to build up his
reputation. He led Israel in a disastrous battle against the
Philistines and Jesus gave the fledging king a chance to redeem
himself, but driven by fear and unbelief, Saul rebelled and missed
the mark. King Saul recognized that David
was his replacement and he became obsessed with murdering the
ruddy-haired shepherd boy who kept growing in fame. He failed to
recognize that the situation simply got worse each time he tried to
fix the problem through his own inept and blundering efforts. The
Philistines invaded toward the end of his life and Saul went to the
enemy of God for help. The first king of Israel did not have to
fail. It was a conscious choice and humanity still faces the same
demons that Saul encountered!
