CBS III.4 – Saul and David – 1 Sam 16-2 Sam 1

Recorded March 15th 2011

We learn about the different characters of Saul and David. Saul becomes increasingly jealous and resentful of David, and seeks David’s death, but David remains loyal to Saul, will never “lift his hand against the Lord’s Anointed”, and is always ready to forgive and be reconciled. Caught in the middle of the conflict is Saul’s son Jonathan, who is David’s best friend.

The episode includes some famous stories:

  • Samuel anoints David (ch 16, a favorite reading for Confirmation)
  • David soothes Saul with his harp-playing (ch 16)
  • David fights Goliath (ch 17)
  • Saul consults the Witch of Endor (ch 28)
  • David’s Elegy for Saul and Jonathan “how are the mighty fallen” (2 Sam 1)
