This article was originally written for Christ Hold Fast. The life of King David is one of the more fascinating narratives in the entire Bible. If you think about it, we know more about David than probably any other figure in Scripture. We know about his early years. About the times he saved his sheep from being ambushed. About his extraordinary anointing. About his infamous fight with the Philistine giant, Goliath. About his subsequent life on the run from King Saul. About his eventual ascension to the throne of Israel and the countless conquests through which he led them. About his terrible sin against Bathsheba and Uriah — and all the horrible consequences that came with that as a result.
