The Israelite nation’s first king was God. He used the judges and prophets as His representatives to govern the nation. Yet the people wanted an earthly king. God wasn’t happy with the idea and knew it would give the nation much grief and difficulties, but He consented. Thus began a line of good and bad kings and there was a constant pendulum swing between honoring and dishonoring God.
These interactive PowerPoint presentations give you a platform to tell the stories of these judges, prophets, and kings. They include the Bible text, pictures, activities, music and more.
