Hard Questions

  1. (I Samuel 7) Baals and Ashtoreths? Storm and fertility god and goddess (she especially of fertility and sexual love) - why? They were living out the consequences of Leviticus 28. Human responses for problems that require repentance and the activity of God. The stories in Genesis, especially about barrenness, are there to draw them back to God when they experience barrenness in the new world. They’re living as if there is no God.
  2. (I Sam. 10:9-16) “Saul among the prophets?” 1 Sam 10:10, the NKJV says, “The Spirit of God fell upon him” but it could very well be “a spirit from God.” In I Sam, 19. Saul is naked all day and all night prophesying, and it’s an act of humiliation from God. The phrase “Spirit of God came upon him” harkens back to the Judges. Saul is no different from the previous judges, who also were capable of powerful feats, but were not worthy to be king.
