"The Once & Future King" Life of David


Part One - David's Rise (1 Samuel 16-19) (April 22)

          Part Two - The David and Bathsheba Affair and its Aftermath (2 Samuel 11-13) (April 29)


There are many intriguing parallels and interesting connections between the biblical stories of King David and those about the patriarch Jacob and his family. I will point out some of these connections and discuss their literary and theological significance. The first class will focus on the beginning of the David story in 1 Samuel 16-19, looking at parallels between David and Jacob/Joseph. In the second class I will discuss the narrative of David and Bathsheba (2 Samuel 11-13) and its relationship with the Joseph story of Genesis 37-50.
