B. Questions to ponder 1. How were Saul's sins so much worse than David's that he would lose the kingdom and suffer the removal of God’s Spirit? he was assuming upon God’s part.

Once the kingdom was removed from Saul, why torture him so long by allowing him to linger as king? It was to give David time to train and to be ready to be king. Also to show the Israelites on the long time basis, what a king would really mean to them. David does get his recognition for his military accomplishes. To give Saul time to repent. There were many times that David could have taken Saul out. 3. How are we to understand the Spirit of the LORD and an evil spirit from the LORD as they relate to both Saul and David? 4. Why did God chose Saul as king and allows such personal and national disaster? Saul’s life is a tragedy. C. Focus of the Narrative II. Rise of David A. Background information 1.
