The Threats We Face and the Dilemmas of David

In both Judaism and Christianity, David has come to be remembered as the most influential king ever, but his life was far from simple. He was threatened by the Philistine warrior Goliath, the paranoid King Saul, the righteous court prophet Nathan, and even his own conniving son Absalom. At times David himself was far from heroic. This series from 1 and 2 Samuel reflects on the challenges and threats—the intimidation, jealousy, righteous anger, and betrayal—faced not just by David, but by ourselves as well.
