King David, Solomon, & Political Responsibility

The Bible provides a critique of political leaders, even their great political leader King David.


In this episode, Pastor Adam Ericksen discusses King David, Solomon, and Political Responsibility.

The Bible offers two very different stories of King David, considered to be Israel’s greatest king. David’s sex with Bathsheba and subsequent murder of her husband brings a sword of conflict and division into the kingdom.
