    This Bible study devotional covers 2 Samuel 1:1-2:7. In this passage, David learns that Saul and Jonathan have died. David grieves publicly but ultimately takes the throne and establishes his kingdom.

    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 1:1-2:7, we see why Jesus is a worthy King. He would rather die as God’s anointed than celebrate the death of his enemies. And Jesus rises to power not to end a vendetta against us but to invite those loyal to the powers of darkness into a new covenant with him.

    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.

    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 5-6, we see a picture of what God’s kingdom will look like when he returns. Like Israel, we will finally have a permanent home with God living among us.

    This Bible study devotional covers 2 Samuel 7-9. In this passage, David talks about the difference between those who love God’s word and those who don’t. Anyone who loves God’s word is like a tree planted by streams of water, anyone who doesn’t is blown away like dust.

    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 7-9, we see that Jesus is the son God promised David, who even now rules over all things.

    This Bible study devotional covers 2 Samuel 10-12. In this passage, David abuses his power, sleeps with Bathsheba, and murderers her husband. From this point on, David’s rule will be poisoned by these events.

    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 10-12, we see that Jesus is a better King than David. He did not use his power to abuse or kill but to heal and raise the dead.

    bible, bible study, christ, christianity, david bowden, devotional, expositional, expository, god, gospel, gospel centered, jesus, new testament, old testament, scripture, spoken gospel

    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.
