2 Samuel: David's Heart Revealed
David is known as Israel's greatest king, but he was not a super-hero. He had to fight many battles to establish his throne, and when he did become king, he committed murder, adultery, and brought disaster on his family. He was a man with human failings, yet he was also a man after God's own heart. David depended on God's grace for forgiveness when he stumbled—the same grace that is available to us today.
In this study, pastor John MacArthur will guide you through an in-depth look at the historical period beginning with David's struggle to establish his throne, continuing through his sin and repentance, and concluding with the tragic rebellion of his son Absalom.
Studies include close-up examinations of Joab, Amnon, Tamar, Absalom, and others, as well as careful considerations of doctrinal themes such as "Obedience and Blessing" and being a "Man After God's Own Heart."
