The Old Testment books of Samuel were originally one text. Being large and cumbersome, translators broke it into two parts for the Septuigent (early Greek translations of Scripture). Around the 15th century, however, it was officially broken into two books.
This study (initially hosted on the website Fall 2012) covers Second Samuel, a book that details Israel after the death of King Saul and the subsequent reign of King David.
We all know David was “a man after God’s own heart,” but he certainly wasn’t perfect. In this study we learn stories of victory and righteousness, but we discover a very different side of David and his family — drama, betrayal, lusts, deceit … and all the repercussions that follow.
The theme of the Old Testament rings loudly again:
If God can use flawed people like these, He can also use you and me.
Explore God’s definitions of righteousness, godliness and forgiveness in the pages of this book.
