Slide 1

This story about God choosing a new King is found in the Bible in the first book of Samuel. – Slide 1

Slide 2

One day God spoke to Samuel and said, ‘Fill your horn with oil and go to Bethlehem. There you will find a man called Jesse. I have chosen one of his sons to be King.’ – Slide 2

Slide 3

Samuel went to find Jesse. ‘Call your sons together and we will make an offering to God,’ he said. ‘One of your sons will have God’s blessing today.’ – Slide 3

Slide 4

‘Show me which son to choose,’ Samuel prayed.  ‘It is not being the most handsome, tall or strong that makes a good king,’ said God. ‘I look for a good and honest heart.’ – Slide 4

Slide 5

Samuel looked at each one of Jesse's sons, but not one of them were God’s chosen king. ‘Do you have any more sons?’ Samuel asked. – Slide 5

Slide 6

‘My youngest son is just a boy and he is looking after the sheep,’ replied Jesse. ‘Send for him straight away,’ Samuel told him. ‘We won’t sit down to eat until he gets here.’ – Slide 6

Slide 7

As soon as Samuel saw David, God said to him, ‘This is the one I have chosen to be King of Israel, because I know how much he loves me.’ – Slide 7

Slide 8

Samuel poured the Holy oil in his horn onto David’s head, to show he was God’s chosen King. God’s spirit was with David from that very day. – Slide 8
