1 Samuel 31

Here's how the study works: Read the chapters mentioned in the heading during the week and share any words, thoughts, verses that stood out to you. Having a week for several chapters creates the opportunity to revisit them and make additional comments as you feel inclined as well as make comments on other people's insights.

31:6 So Saul and his three sons and his armor-bearer and all his men died together that same day.

Bad leaders take people down with them, which was a shame especially Jonathan. Why was he so loyal to Saul? He expected to be second to David (1 Samuel 23:27) but he died. Perhaps he was naïve. He said Saul would not lay a hand on David but David later spared Saul's life twice when Saul was trying to kill him. Perhaps Jonathan should have joined David but lacked the courage to do so.
