Pay close attention to the words and what they are referring to here: 1 Samuel 1:1 There was a certain man of Ramathaim-zophim of the hill country of Ephraim whose name was Elkanah the son of Jeroham, son of Elihu, son of Tohu, son of Zuph, an Ephrathite. Samuel, and even his father, were not Ephrathites, for Ephrathites were generally Judahites. Zuph ...

This question is almost impossible to answer, as stated. As Baptists (by definition) have no unifying system of doctrine, the denomination as a whole has not made any kind of statement about how they deal with particular items, with the notable exception of baptism. That is to say, you'd have to ask each Baptist individual to find out what they believe. ...

Commentators do not all agree on what happened here, but from the context the most plausible is that God overtook the wicked witch with a vision of Samuel to rebuke Saul. The rebuke is even in part for wickedly seeking a medium in the first place. God on occasion put additional sting and irony into his rebukes by taking a strange person to act as his ...

Yes, Samuel took over as high priest of the Shiloh sanctuary after the previous high priest Eli and his two sons Hophni and Phineas all died on the same day (1 Samuel 4:11-18), even though his father was an Ephraimite (1:1). One example of his priestly activities is described in 7:5-10. How could this be since he wasn't a descendant of Aaron? The most ...

1 Samuel 7 explicitly says that Samuel judged Israel: 1 Samuel 7:5-17 (ESV) Then Samuel said, “Gather all Israel at Mizpah, and I will pray to the Lord for you.” So they gathered at Mizpah and drew water and poured it out before the Lord and fasted on that day and said there, “We have sinned against the Lord.” And Samuel judged the people of Israel at ...

Let's start with 3 Nephi 1:4-5. And it came to pass that in the commencement of the ninety and second year, behold, the prophecies of the prophets began to be fulfilled more fully; for there began to be greater signs and greater miracles wrought among the people. But there were some who began to say that the time was past for the words to be ...

Do you know of a prophet in the Old Testament between Moses and Samuel? Joshua is the only one from whom we have much of a prophetic record, and in that record he seems to pretty much limit himself to what Moses taught. So Jesus, having explained that Moses testified about His coming and His teaching, moves on to Samuel, I would guess. Elsewhere, such as ...

Following Moses, whatever prophets were present in Israel in the period of the Judges did not leave much writing to speak of. Samuel of David's day was likely considered the greatest prophet since Moses. All the rest of prophetic literature available to the Nephites comes after him, so Christ's reference is an apt summary of the Israelite corpus available to ...

While it is true that the Baptist faith does not specify many things in which there are rigid specifics for belief; that is based in the belief that the holy Ghost will teach each person how the specific parts of the Bible apply to them individually. That belief is fostered by Jesus saying in: John 14:26 KJV But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom ...
