Saul (King of Israel)

Saul was the first of Israel's kings. Prior to this, Israel had functioned as a confederation of tribes, but the people felt they would be stronger if they had a king. Samuel didn't like the idea because it was a rejection of God's kingship over the people. Nonetheless, God directed Samuel to anoint Saul as the first king. These activities are about King Saul and Samuel.
