The slide titles are taken from the reading; the slides themselves carried no titles.

Slides 4 and 5, and slides 7 and 10, in the reading appear to be numbered the other way round on the slides, but should appear in the order shown here (and in the reading) according to the Biblical story. This is presumed to be an error in the numbering of the images on the slides.
