Hannah --- An Unselfish Woman Of Godly Character

The first seven chapters of the book of 1st Samuel record the end of the period of the judges. Samuel was the last judge of Israel. In 1 Samuel 8:1-22, we read that the people demanded a king.

As the book of 1st Samuel begins, we are introduced to Samuel’s mother and father (1 Samuel 1:1-8). Not much is said about his father, but as we study his mother, Hannah [Heb. – “one of grace or favor”], we begin to see something of the reason why Samuel grew to be such a great man in the service of God.
