The David Story: Shepherd, Father, King

Encounter the beauty of the Bible.

“The David Story: Shepherd, Father, King” explores the lives of Israel's first two kings—Saul and David—to discover the Bible’s profound lessons about fatherhood, the nature of sin, and the consequences of sin on both a family and a nation. While David suffers great tragedies due to his own transgressions, he models a path to redemption through repentance.

In this free seven-lecture online course, you’ll join Professor Justin Jackson in a careful reading of First and Second Samuel to gain a deeper understanding of the meaning and beauty of this story that is not only fundamental to the Christian and Jewish faiths, but also a literary masterpiece.

In addition to the seven lecture videos, enrollment in this course gives you free access to supplementary videos and quizzes to aid you in the examination of David’s monumental life.
