This coming Sunday, our Sunday School teacher will be out, so my class has nominated that I teach it. The program for this year matches what the children are doing, so we are going to start discussing heroes of the faith. The first one, of course, is David. My thoughts are to start at the end, the New Testament, when David is seen in an absolutely positive, prophetic light and is the archetype of the King-Priest Messiah. Then, traveling backwards, discussing the historical evidences and ending up with the failure of David’s throne and line, as well as he many faults and sins, then returning back to the notion that David is a man after God’s own heart.
What I intend to do this week is to post various things, to get reflections, etc… So, please feel free to leave comments.
