Chapter 14 – God Called Samuel

Samuel grew up at Shiloh learning all he could about the sacred ceremonies held at the sanctuary. There were the sacrifices to be offered, and that in itself was almost a full- time job. Animals had to be inspected before they were killed at the altar. Some of the meat was to be put on the altar, and a fire lit to burn the sacrifices as the Lord had directed. The leftover meat must then be divided between the priests and the family offering the sacrifice.
