This is a 13 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Religion – Heroes of the Old Testament – Eli. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
God holds his clergy to a higher standard. When the Old Testament character Eli failed to heed that, the result was disastrous. Eli was the next to last of the judges, and he also held the office of high priest.
His life was marked by humility, service, and love of God, but he also had 2 sons who followed him into the priesthood who exploited the people they were supposed to serve. Eli's leniency with their sinful behavior brought God's wrath down on them.
The first appearance of Eli occurs in 1 Samuel 1, when he encountered Hannah at the tabernacle at Shiloh. This barren woman was praying for a baby, and Eli accused her of being drunk. When she explained her situation, he blessed her, asking God to grant her request. Hannah miraculously gave birth to Samuel, whom she turned over to Eli as a boy, to become a servant of the Lord. It was through Eli’s guidance that Samuel became a beloved priest of Israel.
The presentation covers the following:
