One after God’s own heart? 3


I love David and the narratives surrounding his life and at some point I would like to write about him. In the meantime many great folks have already done so. See Stephen Cook’s recent entry:
David: A hermeneutic Entree into Scripture

The character of David’s portrait in Bible invites the reader to identify with the figure in all his humanity. David is so often presented in Scripture not as a great king, but as a human with a real soul in whom readers can see their own struggles and pain.

    Well, I delivered these several years ago and they are two very different approaches (one context was an African-American church and the other a synagogue). The first is (now) a rather lengthy text and was delivered at Temple Sinai NO and the other is more of an outline and focuses more upon how David can, in fact, help us to understand how to be “Christlike.”
