The King God Wanted
Passage: 2 Samuel 8:1–10:19
The book of 2 Samuel can be divided up into two sections--the first describing David’s rise, and the second outlining his fall. This week, we will look at the last of the chapters which follow his rise and the greatness of his reign. We will see all of the ways that David embodied God’s ideal chosen king. While ultimately David fell short, he did foreshadow the true and better King who is to come.
