The woman we are looking at today was no ordinary woman. She was, in fact, a medium. A medium is defined as a person claiming to be in contact with the spirits of the dead and to communicate between the dead and the living. Today we would call her a necromancer, psychic, or more simply, a witch. The medium’s story is told in 1 Samuel 28:7-25 and she is mentioned again in 1 Chronicles 10:13.
