Lucian of Antioch (c. 240 – January 7, 312), known as Lucian the Martyr, was a Christian presbyter, theologian, and martyr. He was noted for both his scholarship and ascetic piety. Was Lucian of Antioch the Path to the corrupt Byzantine Text, which led to the even more corrupt Textus Receptus, which lies as the foundation to the King James Version NT?
The elders of the tribes approached Samuel and asked him to appoint a king to become their new leader (1 Sam. 8:5). The difficult process of moving from an old, established form of government to a new organization headed by a king brought disappointment to Samuel (1 Sam. 8:6). He described for the people what the new form of government would cost them (1 Sam. 8:10-18). But they were determined to have a king to provide military protection, so God instructed Samuel to “give them a king” (1 Sam. 8:22). The books of 1 and 2 Samuel describe this transition to a kingship under Saul and the eventual emergence of David as the ruler over a united Israel and the establishment of David's dynasty.
