King David - A Mirror for the World

King David: A Mirror for the World

7/1/2018 – 9/2/2018

In this series, we will study the life of King David as told in 1 and 2 Samuel. David was legendary as a shepherd, giant slayer, warrior chieftain, outlaw, mercenary, lover, poet, musician, political leader and king. His story is one of rags to riches; yet he is dreaded by his enemies for his brutality, hated by his father-in-law, betrayed by his wife, and his son led a revolution against him. His affair with a married woman led to the murder of her husband. David was a complex man, controversial and conflicted, and yet we know him as ‘a man after God’s own heart.’ King David is a mirror for the world, a reflection of every human heart. David’s story is our story, a tangled story of sin and redemption.
