Week 14: 1 & 2 Samuel: David

Last week we looked at how all the onesies and twosie books lined up (ie., 1&2 Samuel, 1&2 Kings, 1&2 Chronicles).

This week we will zoom in on the life of David, the first king over unified and expanded Israel.

David really is a good example of what it is to be viewed through “grace-colored-glasses.” The atrocities he committed are heinous and naturally speaking, unforgivable. I guess that’s why grace is so scandalous…justice often seems hard to see.

But that is what makes Christ so unique…He deals with our sin issue. He has meted out the justice on Himself.  And He works in us a change that makes us more like Him and less like our natural self!

So this week is a race through David’s life covering First and Second Samuel. Click on the pic below to get the readings and a two page handout:

David was a Shepherd, Singer, Song-writer and King. He also was an adulterer, murdered and liar. But God brought him back to Himself...."and on His shoulders laid me." He knew what it was to have God be his kindly shepherd!
