It’s All Relative: King David’s Relationships with Michal, Jonathan, and Batsheva

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will explore the life and actions of King David as presented by the books of 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, and 1 Kings, which often stand in stark contrast to the more classically received understanding of David presented by the books of Chronicles.  It will focus on three of his relationships -- with Michal, Jonathan, and Batsheva --that help define King David ethically and politically The implications of each story arc will give us a fuller understanding of who David truly was.
