What does the history of Israel’s kings have to do with the Christian life today? You might be surprised! The Old Testament books of 1 and 2 Samuel trace the development of Israel’s monarchy from its establishment under the prophet Samuel through the reigns of the nation’s first kings, Saul and David. Yet as memorable as these stories may be, an even greater story lies at their heart: that of the true King, “great David’s greater Son,” who would one day come to establish His throne and rule in our hearts forever.

In volume eight of this series, Alistair Begg traces the effects of David’s sin as they spread like ripples throughout his kingdom, culminating in the outright rebellion of his son Absalom. While the insurrection was eventually quelled through God’s providence, this tumultuous period of King David’s reign reminds us of the frailty of all earthly kingdoms and of the surpassing worth of Christ’s kingly rule.
