Samuel has been established as one who speaks God’s word, the prophecy of God’s judgment against the house of Eli has been broadcast to the whole nation… how will the people respond.

Nothing causes more damage to the witness of Jesus in this world than corrupt leadership within the church. And yet, the church still struggles to be free from horrible examples of it. As we continue in 1 Samuel, pastor Joe unpacks the corruption of Israel’s priests and helps us understand how we can reconcile this painful tragedy in our own times.
We have seen Hannah cast herself at the mercy of Yahweh and find Him faithful and gracious. As we continue in our 1 Samuel series, Pastor Joe helps us see the kind of life Hannah’s stunning faith produces and the truth that empowers it.
