David: Shame in Rejection

January 10, 2016

David also experienced rejection. He was devastated by how swiftly the hearts of his people had turned from him, how craftily his own son had plotted against him, and how thoroughly his life had been turned upside down. Seemingly overnight he had been changed from hero to zero. People who before had risked their lives for him were now acting...

David: Shame in Accusation

January 11, 2016

David was being pelted by both stones and words. As he suffered his son’s betrayal and his people’s rejection, another person came to add insult to injury. Shimei, a relative of David’s old nemesis Saul, took advantage of David’s exposed position to retaliate on behalf of his clan. Shimei cursed and hurled rocks, but his most vicious verbal...

Jesus, Son of David

March 1, 2016

Son of David

December 23, 2019

Son of David Once King David was securely established on his throne, he wanted to build a temple for the Lord. God told him no, but also made a remarkable promise: “The Lord himself will establish a house for you” (2 Sam. 7:11).

The Family of David

July 3, 2017

The Family of David Situation comedies from the 1950s and 60s such as Leave It to Beaver and Father Knows Best idealized family life. Today’s shows often depict far-from perfect families. David’s family was certainly not ideal. Few of his offspring matched his success or equaled his faith. Many of David’s descendants forsook the Lord. In...

David: Courage in the fields

January 9, 2012

Political debates are always fierce, even more so with the bitter partisanship of recent years.

David Chose the Right Treasure

June 26, 2019

David Chose the Right Treasure In the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Donovan chose the wrong Grail cup. When given the same choice, Indiana Jones chose rightly. On the table were gold, bejeweled, and richly designed cups. But Indy chose a simple wooden vessel, "the cup of a carpenter," and he passed the test! King David, too, possessed...
