Biblical leadership in the Old Testament is based on the idea of servanthood--"not a servant of the people but a servant of God."* In this episode of the "Serve Like the King" series, Dr. Mark Hahlen looks at the differences between the son of Hannah and Elkanah (Samuel) and the sons of Eli (Hophni and Phinehas). We see that Samuel was with God while the sons of Eli did not know God. Dr. Hahlen will help us understand that the foremost qualification of "leadership" in the church is knowing the LORD, and the knowledge of the LORD is demonstrated in servanthood to him and to his people.
