In the first half of the 11th century BCE, Shiloh was one of the most important sites in the Land of Israel. Shiloh was the sacred religious center of the Israelite population. Here the Ark of the Covenant rested within the Tabernacle for nearly a century, until the Ark was captured by the Philistines in battle. Here Eli served as high priest. Here Samuel, prophet and seer, grew up and served the Lord. Ultimately, David brought the Ark from Givah to Jerusalem, where it stayed until the Babylonian destruction of the First Temple in 586 BCE.
This film brings to life the biblical stories which took place at Shiloh, from the construction of the Tabernacle, through the famous reconciliation with the Tribe of Benjamin, the arrival of Samuel and the battle which led to the destruction of the site.
