David son of Jesse, a man after God’s own heart. No one else in the Bible is honored with this same distinction. No other person in the Old Testament was written about more. The Bible says David was anointed by the God of Jacob, and he was the hero of Israel’s songs.
But he was also just a man. A sinful man and often a brokenhearted father, king, and worshipper. There is so much to learn from David’s life, but it is more than that. Through David we have the chance to learn about who God IS and what His heart looks like.
Understanding David’s heart can inform us of God’s heart. And understanding God’s heart can transform our own hearts! We hope you’ll join us this summer as we study David.
