Episode 8: A King for the Hebrews
Samuel has been a faithful prophet and judge of Israel for many years, but the people are increasingly dissatisfied. Attacks from surrounding nations have fed their desire for a king to lead them. Will the fledgling nation ever learn to trust in God alone and thank him for all He's given them?
Since the shy farmer, Saul, has become the king of Israel, his family has noticed some changes. His newfound power and status leave him little time to consult with God, and there's no telling who will be the next target of his suspicions and anger. How far should we follow if our leaders take a wrong turn? This and other lessons come through in this story.

Jacob's Ladder: The Complete Series - DVD – Swan D, 07/13/2009
I thought this series was going to be engaging and interesting to watch. I usually do enjoy children's videos and family movies. However, this was so low-budget that even I was bored watching it and that was just the first video. I wouldn't have even been interested as a kid in this film. This is an age where graphics inspire imagination and make stories come to life. Live-action when done poorly, like a renaissance-fair re-enactment, ends up looking like kitsch or campy. That's what this was like. I liked the premise, but this if the whole series is like the first video, it needs a serious update.
Jacob's Ladder Episodes 8 & 9: Saul - DVD – Janet O, 05/03/2009
This was our first episode of Jacob's Ladder we watched and it's amazing how it brings scripture to life. It's one thing to read scripture to young children but when scripture is presented visually, it's hard to forget. Can't wait to watch the other ones. One word of caution. Watch these in order. I put all of them in my queue in order but the first one I got was V4. To get them in volume order I deleted all volumes except the one I wanted mailed out next. To watch them out of order will take the chronology out of the lessons and create some confusion.
