We're continuing our story of Samuel Becomes a Priest. One of the most important things he did was command the people to destroy their idols.
The idol they're tearing down on this page is Baal, a very common god in Egypt and the Middle East. There are a few different variations of him, but I chose the bull because I thought it would make the strongest impression on the kids. I placed it on a large pedestal to make it imposing. Then, I painted it with two highly contrasting colors, black and gold.
This destruction of Baal has a huge impact on the Israelites as they face the Philistines later in the story.
