Samuel, Kings & Chronicles

Let's keep learning about the other Books of History in the Old Testament.
We already learned about Joshua, Judges and Ruth.

Next up are the books of 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, 2 Kings, 1 Chronicles and 2 Chronicles..
For the numbered books we say first or second, like First Samuel and Second Samuel.

These six books all talk about some prophets and very famous kings that ruled over Israel for some time.

The first person is Samuel. He was a prophet of the Lord, which means he talked to God, and got instructions from God that he told to other people.
Samuel also anointed Kings, which means he declared to all the people that God had chosen that person as King.

Samuel was a very faithful man, and anointed both King Saul and King David.
