The Matter of the Kingdom

1 Samuel 10:1-27 (ID: 3373)

The time had come for Saul’s private anointing and public proclamation as Israel’s king. His coronation, though, was not like that of pagan monarchs: the prophet Samuel used the occasion to preach the Word of God and emphasize God’s sovereignty by identifying Saul as the Lord’s chosen prince. Examining this inauguration scene, Alistair Begg encourages us to remember that it is not the king that matters most, but the matter of the kingdom itself—a kingdom that ultimately would belong to Christ.
