Two different major figures—Samuel and Saul—appear in I Samuel. Samuel, an epochal determine whose value equals that of Joshua, publications Israel out of the chaotic interval of the judges and serves the arrival of the Davidic state. Saul, an adjust ego first to Samuel after which to David, personifies the idolatry and unbelief that plague Israel through the previous testomony. The ways that he contrasts with Samuel and David supply important religious lessons.

The lesser characters in I Samuel are rarely incidental—Eli the corrupted priest, Hannah the tearful believer, and Jonathan the trustworthy buddy, to call simply three.
