As King David’s days wind down he finds himself unable to keep warm and faced with how to (along with Bathsheba) ensure there would be a smooth transition to his son Solomon. Major palace intrigue! This session we complete the book of 2 Samuel and take in the first chapters of 1 Kings so that we can see the unfolding of the third link in the united Kingdom. Saul had no heart, David a whole heart, and Solomon had half a heart. From here on out there will be a split kingdom and to two sets of kings – one dynasty over the northern kingdom of Israel, the other under the southern kingdom of Judah. Where does David hail from? Who is the lion from the tribe of Judah?
Imagine David’s regrets as a father.
Onward and upward! Soon we will engage the Psalms in all of their heart-glory.
Hope you are enjoying the structure and encouragement.
