This year (2015-2016) in Followers, we are storying our way through the book of 1 Samuel. It’s a little experimental (you can read about that here).

1 Samuel 1:21 – 2:36

Hannah weans Samuel and presents him to the LORD at Shiloh. Samuel continues to grow in the LORD in the house of Eli (priest at Shiloh) while his sons, Hophni and Phinehas, do wicked things.

This is a story that contains an important storytelling theme of compare and contrast. Samuel is the good son, while Hophni and Phinehas are the bad sons.

The LORD is looking for: “a faithful priest who will do according to what is in my heart and mind.”

Part of the slides include a recap of the preceding stories.

I use these slides to walk the students through the story. If you read the text and then look from graphic to graphic, hopefully you’ll see the progression and the unfolding of the story.

I created these slides using a service called Canva.
