About this Episode

This Bible study devotional covers Psalm 13-4. In this passage, we see David’s sins reflected in his sons. Like his father, Amnon gives in to his lust and rapes his half-sister. David, hearing his own son is just like him, does nothing.

As always, we are committed to showing you how to see the good news of the Gospel in every passage of Scripture. In 2 Samuel 13-14, we see that God is a decisive ruler, unlike David in his later years. He will not tolerate the rape of his daughters. He will not allow his sons’ lust for power to go unpunished. Jesus’ death proves that God will by no means clear the guilty.

We believe the only path to transformative Bible engagement is to see Jesus and his gospel wherever you are in the story. Jesus taught that he can be seen on every page of the Bible. Only by seeing the light of the Gospel in the face of Jesus can we be transformed into his image (2 Cor. 3:18, 4:6).

We want to help people engage with every corner of the Bible in a transformative way. To that end, we are making Christ-centered, devotional podcasts that cover every chapter of the Bible. They are brief field guides through every passage of scripture that explain each chapter within its context and how it reveals more about the good news of Jesus.

The Gospel changes things. Through our resources, we hope to create growing, deepening, and transforming Bible engagement that reshapes individuals, churches, and cultures with the Gospel. And we hope that you will join us in that mission.
