… but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God — 1 Samuel 30:6bb

David is one of the key figures of the Bible, mentioned exactly 1,100 times. The Book of 1 Samuel introduces him to the world. In Part 01, he emerged from total obscurity to becoming a national hero in the slaying of Goliath (Chapter 17). Here in Part 02 of this series, he becomes King Saul’s son-in-law and greatly celebrated by his countryman. Yet, because of his anointing and popularity, he became the hated target of the demonised, backslidden monarch. Throughout his trials, David showed exemplary character, nobility, earth-inheriting Biblical meekness, and more. Most importantly, we begin to learn why he is called the ‘man after God’s own heart.’ That alone makes 1 Samuel a compelling study.

In ‘A King for Israel: Understanding the Book of 1 Samuel Part 02 – Chapters 18 to 31,’ you will learn about:

  • David in the court of Saul and his covenantal friendship with Jonathan;
  • David’s life and conduct in exile as he escapes from the murderous hand of Saul;
  • How God delivered David from death again and again;
  • The Cave of Adullam and the formation of David’s mighty men;
  • The prudent wisdom and cunning of Abigail, David’s future wife;
  • David’s troubled sojourn in the land of the Philistines;
  • The tragic death of Saul, Jonathan, and the Philistine defeat of Israel – yet, it was not the end, but only the beginning.
