This Bible study devotional covers 2 Samuel 2:8-4:12. In this passage, Saul’s son and general set up a rival kingdom to David’s. It’s marked by political cunning, force, and spy craft. But this is the wrong way to set up a kingdom. David overcomes Saul’s dynasty not with politics but with prayerful waiting.
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 2:8-4:12, we see that David’s rise to power is a picture of how God brings his Kingdom in a complex and competitive world like ours. Just as David rose to his throne and Jesus rose from the dead, the humble will one day rule the world. What we must do is wait.

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.Support Jesus In All Of The Bible
