1) He served as Judge (1 Samuel 7:15) and leader.

2) He guided the people when they requested that a king be appointed (1 Samuel ch.8); and he appointed Saul and later King David, at the word of God.

3) He wrote the Books of Ruth and Judges (Talmud, Bava Batra 14b) and the Book of Samuel (until the verse concerning his death; it was completed by another prophet. Talmud, ibid).

4) He led the people in a great movement of repentance (1 Samuel ch.7).

5) Until his time, prophecy had been relatively rare (1 Samuel 3:1). Starting with his leadership, the phenomenon of the "sons (disciples) of the Prophets" (2 Kings 2:3) became a regular institution.

1) He served as Judge (1 Samuel 7:15) and leader. Each year, he traveled in order to teach and serve as Judge (1 Samuel 7:16) in the various places.
2) He guided the people when they requested that a king be appointed (1 Samuel ch.8); and he appointed Saul and later King David, at the word of God (1 Samuel ch.9-10 and ch.16).

3) He wrote the Books of Ruth and Judges (Talmud, Bava Batra 14b) and the Book of Samuel (until the verse concerning his death; it was completed by another prophet. Talmud, ibid).


4) He led the people in a great movement of repentance (1 Samuel ch.7).


5) Until his time, prophecy had been relatively rare (1 Samuel 3:1). Starting with his leadership, the phenomenon of the "sons (disciples) of the Prophets" (2 Kings 2:3) became a regular institution, and very many people reached the various levels of prophecy (Talmud, Megillah 14a) (though only fifty-five prophets were commanded to record their words for posterity. Ibid).
