Demanding a King

In part two of “Let Earth Receive Her King,” Pastor Gary Webber explores two ancient stories in which God’s people abandoned Him in favor of earthly kings. What is most surprising about these stories isn’t the rebellion of God’s people and their request for lesser kings, but God’s willingness to grant their request. Is it possible that Christians today might fall into that same pattern? Join us as we consider what we want when we demand an earthly king.

1 Samuel 8 and John 19:12-16
