Week 18 – David:

      This week we continue to follow King David. We will see that, far from being a perfect and angelic king, David was sinful just like we are and had family problems just like we do. (Maybe worse, unless your kids have tried to kill you and take everything you have.) But despite David’s sin God remained faithful to his plan to bless the world through Abraham’s descendant David and to create an everlasting kingdom through him.

In our first reading this week, God promises David that David will not build a house for Him but that God will build an everlasting house or kingdom, for David. The house God is speaking about isn’t a house of brick and mortar but a house that finds its final fulfillment in Christ and a house that, through Christ, gives people their ultimate rest.

Unfortunately, after his wonderful beginning things get dicer and dicer as David is not content with what he has and allows family crimes to go unpunished.

January 8th, 2014 – 2nd Samuel 12:1-23 – Nathan calls David out

January 9th, 2014 – Today’s text is a hard one for us to read. It shows us that since the fall into sin we have not moved into a more enlightened and loving state but instead have fallen further away from God. To be honest this text was almost left out of the readings, but it was kept in because, without it, Absalom’s rebellion seems to come out of nowhere. If you are reading with little ones I recommend you read or listen to this text before they do so you can make an informed decision about including them in this text or not.  2nd Samuel 13:1-34a – Tamar, Amnon, and Absalom

  Stuff They Didn't Teach Me In Sunday School: "Skeleton's in the Family Closet"

January 10th, 2014 – 2nd Samuel 14:1-33 – Absalom returns and rebels
