Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. 1 Peter 1:3
The book of 2 Samuel continues the storyof David in the era of kings in Israel. Despite David's anointing many years earlier, his life is complicated bypower plays and spiritual struggles(murder, political intrigue, rape, incest, betrayal, rebellion) that dog Israel as God strives to build a nation that can bring his blessing to all others. In this part of the story we find more of God's promises fulfilled, and we see again how God remains faithful even though his people areoften unfaithful: through the line of David, the Savior of the world willcome.
