- Samuel was born about 1105BC and was the son of Elkanah and Hannah, from the tribe of Levi. Samuel was born in answer to Hannah’s prayers.
Samuel's mother Hannah dedicated Samuel from birth to the Lord God and Samuel served God all his life.
Samuel was asked by God to anoint two kings. First Saul as king then David as king.
In Hebrew, Samuel means: heard of God because God heard Hannah’s prayers
