Melton & More



Date & Time

Mondays, 10:00-11:30am October 12 - January 4


 "There is none holy like the LORD: for there is none besides you; there is no rock like our G!d." - I Samuel 2:2



Course Description :

Hannah, Samuel, Saul, Jonathan, Michal, Nathan, David - important personalities in our People’s narrative, but why?  This course will explore not only the backstory to the birth of the Kingdom of Israel, but also the plots, secrets and hidden agendas that led to its founding.  We will also examine the lives of those individuals who often, unknowingly, labored to bring it to life and their reasons for their actions...or inactions. Our text will be the Book of Samuel I.  It is an amazing story - our family’s story.

Students will need a TANACH for the course. If you do not have one, you can purchase on Amazon by clicking this link: https://buff.ly/2OB5UYi
