Over the last few weeks we have been studying the life of David in our weekly Bible studies on Thursday evenings. We have now reached the part of David’s life which is covered in both 2 Samuel and also 1 Chronicles. Although there are several passages which are identical there are also a lot of comparisons to be made because Samuel is written from a prophetic point of view and points out the consequences of people’s actions whereas Chronicles has a Priestly writer and focuses on praise and worship and David’s role in preparations for the building of the Temple. Just as you need to read all four Gospels to get the full picture of the life of Jesus, you need to read Samuel, Chronicles and the Psalms to see everything that God has to tell us through the life of David. Come on Thursdays at 7.30 p.m. to discover more as we study God’s Word together.
