    LESSON

    2the account of a barren woman should draw our attention. So far we have read of Isaac, Jacob and Joseph, all born to (previously) barren women, as was Samson (Judges 13). All of these men were key figures in Gods plan to make for himself his own people, a holy nation. Therefore as we are introduced to Hannah our attention shifts to the child she is to bear.

    We are also given insight into Israels current leadershipthe priest Eli and his two sons, Hophni and Phinehas (1:3). We are told that Eli was old and his sons were corrupt (2:1225). To complicate things further, the looming threat of the Philistines is made clear (4:211), a threat that would continue to bear down on Israel for the rest of 1 Samuel.

    Yet, out of this bleakness, God gave hopeSamuel, the answer to the heartbreaking prayer of a barren woman. Hannah responded to Gods generosity by dedicating Samuel to the Lord. Once he was weaned he went to live with Eli at Shiloh. Samuel grew in favour with the Lord and the people (2:26) and was set to become a great leader of Israel. God once again acted on behalf of his people and raised up Samuel as Israels leader. Samuel led the people back to God (7:36), and God protected them from the Philistines (7:714). Could Israels leadership crisis finally be over?

    LESSON AIM To help students to understand that Samuel

    was instrumental in Gods kingdom plan of salvation for his people.

    LESSON OUTCOMESStudents will learn about:

    Hannah, who trusted in God Samuel, who had a special purpose

    in Gods kingdom plan.

    Students will learn to: identify ways in which God speaks to

    us today.

    MEMORY VERSE You will judge the whole earth and give power and strength to your chosen king. 1 Samuel 2:10b (CEV)

    Bible backgroundBy the end of the book of Judges, everyone was doing what they thought was right in their own eyes, with little regard for Israels true leader and king, the Lord God. As a result, both the political and religious future of this nation was under threat. What was to become of Israel? Would God keep his promises to them?

    This is the stage onto which a reasonably insignificant man from a reasonably insignificant part of Israel entersElkanah of Ramah, along with his barren wife, Hannah (1 Samuel 1:12). By this stage in the narrative of biblical history,

  • Hannah went to Gods temple. Eli, the priest, worked there. Hannah didnt see him sitting near the door and she started to pray quietly.

    Join hands in prayer, with eyes closed.

    Lord, I feel so sad because I have no children, whispered Hannah.

    Hold arms in cradle formation, rock side to side.

    Please let me have a baby. If you give me a son I promise I will give him back to you! I will bring him here to work with your servant Eli in your temple.

    What promise did Hannah make to God? (Accept responses. If God gave her a son, she would give him back to God, and he would work in the temple with Eli.)

    Eli, the priest, saw Hannah and spoke to her. She explained to him that she was upset. This is what Eli said to Hannah.

    Read 1 Samuel 1:17 from a CEV Bible.

    Hannah must have found this hard to believe, but went back home with her husband and waited for Gods answer.

    Put up your hand if you think that God will answer Hannahs prayer by giving her a baby.

    Acknowledge hands.

    Soon Hannah did have a baby.

    Hold arms in cradle formation, rock side to side.

    It was a boy and she named him Samuel.

    Hannah loved Samuel. She looked after him and he grew bigger and bigger and bigger. But Hannah had not forgotten her promise to God.

    What promise did Hannah make to God? (If you give me a son, I will give him back to you, and he will work in the temple with Eli.)
