Robert Dick Wilson on the Pentateuch, from his book A Scientific Investigation of the Old Testament, page 11:
“...the conservative position is, in general, that the Canon of the books of the Old Testament was completed in the fifth century B. C., before the succession of the prophets ceased. As to the particular portions of the Old Testament, their view is :

The witch seemed surprised and terrified that Samuel actually came.
Reminds me of the movie “Ghost”, where the medium (obviously a scam artist) is terrified when she made “contact”.
Do you believe she was able to summon spirits, or was this a one time event allowed by God for Saul?
Does this have any bearing on our understanding of heaven or state of our spirits after death?
Exodus 7:11 Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments. 12 For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods.

Luke 1:32, 2:22-40
John 1:11, 4:9, 18:35
2 Timothy 2:8.
He had a Jewish mother:
"Mary’s genealogy is supplied in Luke 3:23-38. Dr. Henry Morris explains how we know this genealogy is Mary’s:
“Joseph was clearly the son of Jacob (Matthew 1:16, so this verse [Luke 3:23—says “son of Heli”] should be understood to mean...
John Roach Straton, pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in New York City, was a fierce fundamentalist Baptist leader of the first quarter of the 20th century. I was quite surprised by this bit of his history of which I knew nothing.
The Unlikely Argument of a Baptist Fundamentalist: John Roach Straton’s Defense of Women in the Pulpit.
John Roach Straton and Uldine Utley made an unlikely pair as they waited for the revival meeting to begin at Madison Square Garden on October 31, 1926.
